weblordpepe: My 2 cents: Avoid FAT32.
Can I please get 3 cents?
FAT32: to be avoided (evidently)
NTFS: Great for Windows sharing but I've been advised not to put /home on NTFS
ext3: Great for Linux, but read only access from Windows PCs.
I'm leaning towards ext3 in the hope that someday they can get it write also?
