Creating Three Partitions with Bootcamp

Starting from a single mac osx installation…
  1. Install Windows with Boot Camp Assistant
  2. Open the disk utility and shrink the mac osx partition leaving the amount of space you desire for your new partition.
  3. Create the new partition using disk utility (I used it via install disk in snow leopard).

I formatted my new partition FAT32 so that I could fully utilize it from my mac side or my windows side. I also run Parallels in mac osx from my bootcamp partition. One problem: running windows in parallels causes problems in reading partitions. My next post will address this.
