What I want to do is dual boot Mac OS X and Linux on my MacBook and have access to files on both systems with no problems (if that's even possible). I have already got dual boot but I cannot write/access certain files on my MacBook drive (not to mention any HFS+ drives) and I cannot even mount the Linux boot drive while on Mac OS X, just doesn't show up anywhere.

I think I have already read about this somewhere, though I can't remember exactly where. Was something to do with switching usertype or something along those lines on MacOSX.


This looks the closest to what I was looking for, found it just reading up on other things, figured if anybody else has similar concerns it would help them out: A Comprehensive Guide to Sharing Your Data Across Multi-Booting Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs
