Okay Im planning to reformat my pc soon and reinstall with a dual boot between Windows XP Pro and Linux Ubuntu Gusty, I was wondering since most linux and windows use differently formatted partitions and they cant write to each other what could I do if I wanted to be able to take files off windows and put them in my linux partition or from my linux partition to my windows partition with a quick drag and drop from one partition to another? I don't know too much about partitions and stuff, just enough to make a dual boot system. and I dont like the idea of having to burn something to a CD then copy it off the CD just to transfer a file. Is there maybe a format I could use for a partition that would read/write in both windows and linux? and just use it to hold files I want to copy to the other OS in so all I would have to do is just reboot and load the other OS and copy off that partition or something?
