    Why not using a supported Linux filesystem if you are going to use Linux (EXT2, EXT3, Reiser, whatever)?

    I recently had need for a 250GB HDD [in a portable case] for a Mac OS X computer that could also be used on a Windows PC. I used a small free program called GPARTED, a downloaded .iso file used to create a bootable CD which runs a version of Linux to partition and format that 250GB to FAT32. Another program I bought can do the same, Spotmau's PowerSuite, but is has a lot more things it can do so has been valuable in things I do.
