Can you share HD space from OSX for Vista on Bootcamp?

    So I watched a couple youtube videos on how to make a 32 GB partition for Vista. Seems great.

    The only thing I have doubts about is if you can ONLY use 32 GB for Vista. I don't own a Mac, so I have no clue if this is possible. Can I still save things and store them on the entire HD for the computer instead of the 32 GB partition on Vista?

    If I can't natively do this automatically, is there a method to make this happen? Thanks for any help.

    You can specify whatever amount of storage you want in Boot Camp. As far as seeing across the partitions, the Vista NTFS partition will be able to read & write the Mac partition, while the Mac partition can read-only from the Vista partition.

    Is that a difference in Vista vs. XP? I can not read or write the Mac partition when running XP in bootcamp.

    I can't either, except with macdrive, and i'm not paying $50 for the ability to do it.
