Agreed. Technically it worked, Practically it wasn't the right solution
for me. I am happily using VMWare server in Ubuntu when I absolutley
have to access windows and it's great. When I get some more skills I'll
try Xen and see if it is even closer to native speeds which if so would
be great!

I'm currently trialling symlink from ubuntu home dir to NTFS partition
My Documents directory so the family can access their data (not mail
profiles, bookmarks unfortunately) from either Ubuntu or Windows.
