    I was thinking of doing this, but I have a problem.

    For mac to read my drive, I'd have to create partitions of fat 32 for my windows part and whatever file system the mac uses for the other partitions.


    Now, is there a way to overcome the 4+ GB size limit of fat32 (I need that for dumping raw footage of 12+GB) so my windows machine can access that filesystem and my mac can access it so it's available to both OS's?

    if I call them, aren't they going to get me? (you know, down there)

    Mac can read NTFS.

    Ah yeah. Hence my problem.... hmmm..


    So if I want to deal with files over 4GB in size, I have to choose either to do windows xp with NTFS or Mac with their filesystem.

    Bummer.
