    I have 74 GB Segate HDD

    Case 1

    • 1 gb FAT32 for Windows 98 w/o Program Files
    • 4 gb NTFS for windows xp w/o Program files
    • 10 gb Fat 32 for program files
    • 10 gb Fat 32 for Video collection
    • 10 gb Fat 32 for My music
    • 10 gb Fat 32 for My Documents
    • 10 gb NTFS for My Setups Collection
    • 10 gb Fat 32
    • Remaining for furter linux/OS installation

    Case 2 > only windows XP

    • 50 gb NTFS Wndows XP for all
    • 10 gb NTFS
    • 10 gb NTFS
    • Remanining for free Further Os installation
    When i switched to Case 2 then for windows xp i found Drastic Change in Speed. First i have habbit to use partation based data management but i am happy now with folder based data management @ NTFS file system + Win XP

    those two 10 gb prartations was also wrong step

    so just Enjoy Speed w/o partation NTFS disk + windows XP

    off to "never ever" land
    actually partitioning helps quite a bit ... tho even i bypass it :D ( but thats a secret ... so shhh!! )... i just dun like 2 things .. i hate runnin out of space on a partition .. and i HATE when u have to move files from one to the other they copy instead of move :(
    its quite a stupid thing to do ... i must say ... but to each his/her own
