:zz: Re: zigzag drive

Hi Peter--

I can't tell if you're on the ZigZag list still,
 so I'll answer.

To the best of my knowledge, you **could**
 mount the other partitions under Linux,
 and do as you liked with them, but that would
 have to be done explicitly (though it could be
 in a mischievous config file).

If you're in control of your own machine,
 it should be okay, right, Andrew?
