Yes. That seems to be the current status. What I do on my dual boot is make an extra slice that if FAT32 that I can use to write back and forth between the FreeBSD and MSwin system. So, I end up using up three slices for a dual boot NTFS, FAT32 and FreeBSD. The FAT32 doesn't have to be terribly large, a couple of GBytes does it for me. ////jerry > > Greets > Marco > > > Parker Brown schrieb: > >Using the FreeBSD booter to manage both Windoz XP and FreeBSD 6.1 on the > >same SCSI drive.
