That's as may be, but the main issue is that XP Home doesn't allow
sharing of My Documents. The OP is having the common issue of how to
share data on one computer between two operating systems. Yes, of course
he needs to have a common user account on both operating systems. And
yes, he should have a directory or partition or hard drive set aside for
shared data so that it is easily accessibly from both operating systems.
As an example, when you have Linux and an NT-based Windows operating
system installed on the same computer, you need a partition or drive
formatted FAT32. Since the OP has two NT-based operating systems, he can
format the extra partition or drive NTFS. Or he can put the files he
wants to share in public folders in both operating systems; the Shared
Documents folder in XP Home and the Public folder in Vista.
EOT for me.
