Hi,

May be this is strange question. I am using fedora and xp in my system. They are working fine. ;) . Problem is i have 10 GB free space, currently i am not using. I will mostly use fedora. So i want to keep it as a ext3 partition. But i don't know how to create a partition after installation. .................

I can create FAT32 partition using partition magic and can use it in fedora. But i will store music(which i will use mostly) in that parition. Is there any problem if i do most no of reads to a FAT32 partitoin from Fedora. all types of suggestions are welcome.....

thank u :)

If you don't mind working at the terminal rather than a GUI then both parted and fdisk could help you create
a partition you could even have a seperate home partition and share files from it.
Do "man parted" and/or "man fdisk" at a terninal to learn more.

I don't know if qtparted is available by using YUM but qtparted has a GUI. Sometimes it can cause problems though.

Install qtparted (http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=33085)to create your partition.
