Is this possible to do?
I'll explain why.
I'm trying to make life a lot easier with Linux as I am still having issues learning all the command lines and access the drive through Windows share moaning about permissions.
My aim is to boot from the XBMCLive partition most of the time (400GB) with all my SabNZBd & Sickbeard running and sorting stuff out. BUT - when things go wrong and I have to shift files about, I want to be able to logon to Windows and access the ext4 partition with root access (with no bitching about permissions) so I can fiddle and play with files - like css, php and html or deleting old pointless files that are no longer required.
Can this be done? I asked over on XBMC's site, but the techy's over there are way too advanced and confuse me with their answers (as I know fuck all about Linux in comparison!)
At the moment, I'm reinstalling XBMCLive on a 400GB partition leaving 100GB for Windows 7.
Am I wasting my time?
