ROS and XP can share the same partition. It just cannot be NTFS. You
can always move partitions around.
And yes, while the limitation "hurts," that's a workaround that you can
use. Short of editing the source code, I'm not sure if there's much
that can be done. I'll cc: this to the dev list and ask if the
limitation still is there, but I personally don't see anything about it
having changed. Consider that ROS is still in "early" stages of
use/release. 0.3 hasn't even been released yet. I am sure that when
the partition/fs code is better able to deal with multiple partition
setups, it will all work as it would be anticipated it would.
