    what flavour of fat 32 - MS in their wisdom changed it with every release of a new OS they made.

    which can mean that a win95 OS may not be able to read the version of fat32 that you are using

    WHen I used to bother with having dual OS's (win2k/win98se), I had three drives.

    1. NTFS for win2k
    2. fat32 for Win98se
    3. fat32 for fileswapping and game storage

    so what your planning zeradul will work nicely

    No. IMO, unless you are dual-booting with any OS that can't natively read NTFS, go NTFS. It's more reliable. This is probably familiar to everyone here: You lose power and when your PC is powered on again, you get this piece saying you didn't shut Windows down properly, the disks need to be scanned, blah-blah. I haven't seen that using NTFS, only FAT32.
