Will I be abkle to share a home partiton formated in Extension 3 between The two linux disrtibutions and BSD or wil i have to have Fat 16, 32 or UFS home partition for all three oses to share?

My advice:

install GAG

Install Operating Systems in any desired order


Install FreeBSD, leave the MBR untouched

Install Fedora, install GRUB into Fedoras /

Install CentOS, install GRUB into CentOSes /

Tell GAG which partition is which as necessary.


Sharing files will best be done via ext2 or ext3 for the partiton, yes you can share the / as long as config files don't cause problems with any system specifics (e.g. running KDE/Gnome on all three).


FreeBSD mounts ext3 as ext2 which means without journaling.


I would suggest partitioning as some thing like:


primary partition 1 -> some OS
primary partition 2 -> some OS
primary partition 3 -> some OS
extended partition ->
-> logical drive -> linux swap
-> logical drive -> /home for all systems
-> logical drive -> general purpose storage/recovery formated FAT32 (if there is disk space enough)


depending on what you need and want

Thanks, how ever i have tried Fedora and would rather prefer to do TerryP's suggested partion scheme accept with Slack ware 11 , FreeBSD and CsntOS, oh and BTW I happen to have two hard-drives one of which in particular the 400gb one will be used a s the /home partition.
