EA, I formatted the big partition in linux, when I should have used windows, but win 2000 can only see 120gb (I think) its a 160gb drive.

EA, wasn't there an issue with file attributes in Linux when mounting / reading / writing an FAT partition? Can't remember where I heard that, though. But what attributes will be set for files that were written by a Win application? (Though I don't know how it works for Samba, either.)

Yes, Linux sort-of assumes the permission bits when looking at a FAT partition but there's nothing very magic about it - people do it all the time looking at USB sticks and camera SD cards which have FAT file systems for example.  It can be a bit irritating when it assumes the execute ('x') bit is set and Nautilus and the like ask if you want to open text files or run them as scripts.  Apart from that it all works OK as far as I know.
