Accessing Files on another drive

Hey..alright heres the deal I'm going to do a triple boot if you would Win98SE, Win2K, and Redhat Linux 7.1 now I have two HDs each with 30 gigs i've allowed one HD to the OS's with 10 gigs each...the third I intend to be one for windows to pull things thats compliant with both 98 and 2k and store anything that is OS only (Eg. 98 only or 2k only) in that OS's partition...can I also keep linux files on the second HD along with the windows files..?

Obviously, you can keep all the files on the same HD, but I would partition the second drive into at least 2 parts:

1 for the win98/2k files
1 for the Linux files

That way you can simply mount the second partition when doing the Linux setup and you'll never notice the difference. However, if your question is whether or not you can keep all the files for all the OSs on one drive under one partition, this would be possible, but I believe you'd have to use Samba to access the files on the second drive while in Linux, and just save your other files from Windows as normal. Hope this helps.
