Default partitioning my hdd...

i know something like this has already been asked (because it is a fairly basic question) but i have yet to find an answer...

I am going to partition up my hard drive to put another operating system on it, but i am wondering if i have to put the applications with the partition windows is installed on (or kubuntu linux)? Or is it only data i can put on a separate partition? I would imagine that the apps would have to go with the OS simply because it will use the operating system's dll's, kernel, etc.

thanks!

nope, programs can be on any partition really. as long as the shortcuts are correct then it should be just fine
