[Samba] Dual boot Win98 Centos sharing files

Greetings -

I have searched the mailing list archives and my Samba 3 book and have not 
seen this issue addressed anywhere.  My home desktop box has Win98 installed 
on a 20 GB drive and Centos 4.4 on a 160 GB drive with a Grub menu for 
selecting which OS to boot.  I am wondering if it is theoretically possible 
to share (read and write) files on the Linux drive when booted to Window, 
and vice versa, is it possible to share files on the Windows drive when 
booted to Linux.  My Linux drive is set up with LVM.  I manage a Linux 
server with 8 Windows boxes at work using Samba, so am familiar with 
configuring Samba, but I am wondering if it is possible to do this type of 
file sharing within a single dual boot box?  Thanks.
