Topic: XP partition and OSX partition on 1 external drive?

Hello all,

I have a 250gb OWC external firewire drive, a G4 iBook, and a desktop running xp pro. Currently I have tons of media on the drive and it is partitioned for use with the iBook. I just built my desktop machine and it would make more sense for the desktop machine to use the drive. I would like to partition close to 230gb of the disk for use with the windows machine, but keep a small partition for use in OSX in case I ever need it. The data does not need to be shared between the 2 computers, but the ability to write to the separate partitions is. Neither absolutely needs to be able to be used as a startup disk, but it might be nice if the windows partition could be. Is there any way of doing this?

Thank you

I did not find the right solution from the internet
