You know, I repost to correct one error and introduce another. I
should really take the time to proofread. I was thinking of FAT32, but
typed GB when I meant TB. "2 GB" is obviously a typo, given that FAT32
was invented to overcome the limitation of FAT16.

Personally, for my money, I like ext3, but Windows doesn't support
that natively yet.
