    Hey guys I have a new macbook pro 2.8ghz with a 500gb HD. I am going to use it for work and home/games. I wanted to know what would be the best partition method to use with OSX/Bootcamp and to allow both to share my music and videos that I would put on the machine as well. Thanks in advance for your advice.

    Well, obviously this depends on how much you will be using Windows compared to OS X. Being the Mac user I am, I would suggest doing something like a 75% OS X 25% Windows split, or maybe lean even heavier towards the OS X side. Also, get MacDrive so you can access your Mac files on the Windows side. Great piece of software.
