Re: /boot as FAT32?
yep, I was trying to simplify writing the partitions. C: is /dev/sda1, D: is /dev/sda5, etc. Grub is in the MBR. I'm trying to keep the first partition as FAT32 because I've read that every time you upgrade Windows, it blows away your MBR..and it seems to scribble on the first partition (writing its boot.ini menu there).
I was just wondering if there was a reason /boot had to be ext3...e.g., grub only understands ext3 but not FAT32...
