You'd better go with NTFS. There are a number of blessed and horror
stories which still float around about FAT32 (recent and old; even though
I've never lost data with it -- using it now even now.
Might be worth testing reiserfs on Linux as well. Even if we don't
advocate it's use, it may not hurt to at least get an understanding of
what one my reasonbly expect from it. I'm better there are people
just waiting to run with reiserfs in the Linux world. ;)
