I did this setup as well, actually almost an exact setup as you have
detailed with regards to partiotions, etc. I did get my data partition
mounted under Linux, however only as the root user. Now I have to figure
out how to get it to mount under my regular user account instead of as
root. I think I remember something about setting it up in /etc/fstab and
user a creds file or something like that, so I guess I'll Google a bit
and see if I can figure it out.
Tonight I got sidetracked setting up wine so I could try and get
Dreamweaver MX running on Linux. Still banging away on that one... :-)
