That does bring up multimedia in linux. For the most part you shouldn't have a problem, but there are some licensing issues there. And there are resonably painless workarounds available. Legal ones at that.
On the OSs seeing each other again, windows won't return the favor . It will see the device, but just labels the partitions as "unrecognised OS".
EDIT: I see evilghost beat me to it.
Hey, I'll take explanations from both of you! Sometimes it takes two descriptions to clarify for me!
