Bootable partition FAT or NTFS in Slackware Linux

Link to this post 24 Dec 11

I highly recommend against trying to install any Linux based distro in a FAt or NTFS partition because those filesystems do not support linux permissions. Instead you should consider having designated linux partitions using EXt4 or whatever linux based fs you wish to use then having a windows formatted partition to share files.

there are so many Windows and Mac based application that will show/read 'ext' based partions with out any problem. Try to use native Linux partion for Linux. Use the previously mentioned application to read/copy files to NTFS, when you are in Windows/Mac
