Bought the external Firewire/usb enclosure on ebay...
Bought the whipping fast Western Digital [wd1000jb] 100GB HD w/ 8MB cache too...
We're in Firewire here...
I need to get win 2k to format it in FAT 16 so as I can use it between my PC and mac.
The mac formats it to around 28GB, so I brought it up to my PC and it wants it in FAT 32 (not friendly to Mac).
1) Can I get it cross platform formatted with ~100GB in one partition (or preferably 10GB + 90GB)
2) Is the ata 133 feature on the HD going to read thru the Firewire bus (or the USB bus)?
3) (edit) Do I in fact need to use fat 16 for pc/mac compatability?
4) the priority here is to use the drive on the mac.
mac Os = 9.22
pc Os = 2000 sp3 integrated FW & USB 2.0 on mobo
enclosure = ME-320 w/ spray-paint color scheme
