    NTFS or FAT?

    I'm installing Vista on a second partition on my HDisk using BootIt NG. The
    installation manual for BING recommends that I use FAT or FAT32 for multiple
    OSes, but I wanted to check with other users. Should I use FAT or FAT32, or
    is NTFS better?

    You haven`t ANY choice in the matter. Vista will only install on an NTFS
    file system. During the installation, it will automatically format your
    drive for NTFS. ..... John.
