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.

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 ...

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.

*** -- 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.
