For some reason you can browse to the windows directory and the C:
prompt but after that you can't go anywhere, but SuSE congifures that
automatically, so that is nice. SO you can download things in XP leave
them on the root and then boot in SuSE and pull them across, too bad it
does not work the other way around.

One question as XP is going on the wife's side soon. On the KDE desktop
in Suse can you open up a NTFS disk on the XP side like you do in Win98
fat32? Do you just change the file type from vfat to NTFS in fstab.
Sounds to easy, am I hoping to much here
