Absolutely. That is what I always do. I create the data partition from the Vista side and then I just make a library of those folders (Music, Pictures, etc.) on the Windows 7 side. Very easy and convenient.
Initially it may bark at you because of a permission problem, but that is easy to fix in the security tab of Properties.
