        !             3: The best way to share a partition with Linux is to create an EXT2 filesystem and use revision 0 (aka GOOD_OLD_REV) as the filesystem format. By using the GOOD_OLD_REV (revision 0) format you can avoid the _dir_index_ and _large_file_ issues encountered with DYNAMIC_REV (revision 1).

        !             7: Here is an example of how you can create, format and check an EXT2 filesystem using the Linux native tools: 
        !             8:     
        !             9:     # mkfs -t ext2 -r 0 /dev/hda3
        !            10:     # fsck -C -t ext2 /dev/hda3
        !            11:     # tune2fs -c 20 -i 6m -L Share /dev/hda3
        !            12:     # fsck -C -t ext2 /dev/hda3
        !            13:     # tune2fs -l /dev/hda3
        !            14:     
        !            15: 
        !            16:   
        !            17: If you want to use the revision 1 ext2 fs format it is possible but you need to format it like this: 
        !            18:     
        !            19:     # mke2fs -I 128 -L "Choose a name here" -O ^dir_index,^has_journal -v /dev/partition
        !            20:     
        !            21: 
        !            22: (you can get mke2fs from the e2fsprogs package). 
        !            23: 
        !            24: Partitions formatted this way are compatible with the windows and OS X ext2 drivers:
