Default Re: partitions?

Not really sure how u do the first thing, as i have never loaded MacOS on a PC. What i do when i have dual OS (maybe more than 2 sometimes) is just have each OS on a separate drive. When the PC boots up it detects 2 or more OS's and has u choose (this is in ur boot.ini file). To access all ur files, u would just navigate normally as u would through windows explorer and everythign will be accessible no matter how u boot up.
