    I installed Vista on my Penryn MacBook Pro today. It's fun, though I doubt I'll use it very often.

    So far, I haven't found a way to have Vista see my Mac partition, where everything of value is. Is this just a general incompatibility, or am I missing something?

    Windows cannot read a HFS+ (Mac) disc nativily. There are plugins, like MacDrive, that allow full access. Conversly, OS X can only read from NTFS drives, but can read and write FAT32 drives.
