This isn't safe though. It might work, but you run the risk of corrupting the
partition in question (e.g. Linux updates the spare partition at the same time
windows 98 writes its own data on it ... boom). Same problem if you could use
a real partition ... which you can't, unless you want to share an entire disk.

You're better off using Samba or FTP.

Infinite complexity begets infinite beauty.
