Linux with Windows File System?
Is it possible to install some Linux using the Windows File System, because right now I have a minidistribution wich isn't very usefull and I do not want the usable space of my disk to shrink in Windows(4GB).

You can get certain distrobutions that can run on windows. such as phatlinux and others. take a look on http://ldl.sourceforge.net

err... I'm disappointed with you two... c'mon gore and phish... you should know that you can install linux to fat32... it's not very good and their is a huge performance hit but you can do it... described for RH here
I don't know about other flavours of linux and I don't know what you want to use ha-lf but it can be done. I haven't used RH for some time but the above seem relatively straightforward.

yup, you're right zonewalker,
and if you just want to use some linux stuff on windows take a look at cygwin, wich has been discussed here before..
or just install linux on a spare box and play with it, if you have the luxury of an obsolete pentium box somewhere..

your dissapointed with me? for what? i didnt know what the hell he meant.
"I do not want the usable space of my disk to shrink in Windows"
to me that sounded like he didnt wanna install something....which then id say get a live Linux CD, like the new SuSe Linux 8.2 bootable live.

Ah, I was not aware that you could do that. Learn something new everyday. I guess I should have searched for that b4 I posted....
Thanks for the info. I had never tried it.
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

try pygmy linux. it runs on fat16 or fat32 filesystem. god! if i would have a 4Gb HDD and not 1Gb... but even with this harddrive i run slacware 9.0 (750 Mb) and win 95 (250 Mb)

Running linux on fat32 is slower then a fat guy with two broken legs. Execept when erasing files
same thing in english
Its not software piracy. I’m just making multiple off site backups.

I meant that if I repartitioned my disk I would only be able to use 2gig of it in Windows and the other 2gig in Linux. I want the 4gig to be accessible from both operatingsystems
