    Hello,

    Probably a really stupid question, but I'm going to go ahead and ask anyway.

    I currently have two disks in my beast of a PC, one with the windows OS and applications on it, the other with my documents on.

    If I use bootcamp to get Windows and Leapard on my iMac, will they both happily be able to read and recognise the "documents" disk if I were to use it in a nice USB caddy as an external hard drive?

    It would make life SO much easier if they would, in terms of switching and using files for Windows?

    Thanks in advance.

    * edit *

    It's a 300gb NTFS formatted hard drive.

    OK, think I've gotten this now?

    NTFS can be read, but not written by the Mac OS, BUT I could install this little thing: http://code.google.com/p/macfuse/ and that should make it all work both ways.

    Am I right?
