I just bought a 160GB firewire drive. I want to use it for backup on my Mac, PC, and Linux systems. What’s the best way to accomplish this? Should I create one big FAT32 partition on the PC, one big HFS+ partition on the Mac (and buy Macdrive for the PC), one 80GB FAT32 partition 80GB HFS+ partition (and let the Linux box choose between them), or what?
Any ideas? I tried an evaluation version of Macdrive, but it seemed rather buggy (I actually saw a Windows XP bluescreen for the first time ever). It was a beta though - I could try the stable version, I suppose.
Are Mac and PC partition tables compatible?
