Adding a FAT partition to the swap file ....

Currently I have the following: a) 3.89 Gb of NTFS Partition with NT Server(primary partition) b) 2.24Gb of ext2 Linux partion c) 39Mb of Swap file for Linux.
 
How can I make the swap space as follows: 32Mb of swap linux + 7Mb of FAT for later use between NT Server and Linux.

If possible HOW? And if YES is any side effect on other partitions. I load Linux from NT BootLoader. How the FAT can be accessed via Linux?

Thank you for your help.

This is impossible since this FAT partition will be the last partition on your HD and this is not allowed. FAT partition can not be after a ext2 partition.

You can mount fat with the "vfat" filesystem. Your kernel should/must support this, if not, recompile the kernel.
But that´s probably not enough for running the swap-space on it ! Sorry ...

*** -- It is not allowed from Linux? Is this a rule... or the Linux will not run because of that... what about NT is going to say?

thanks,

As far as I know linux has no problem with it but NT can not access this partition.
