Are there any circumstances where you should use or better to use NTFS vs. FAT32 or vice versa? Anyone? I'm just wondering:confused:

I would say that you should use NTFS when ever possible it is a much better File system and can handle largers driver then Fat32.

I would normally suggest NTFS, but I personally still install in FAT32. I like the ease of being able to access the files through DOS, should something with the system go horribly wrong.

dos is dead. don't be worried about dos support, especially with xp

the only dos support in xp is an emulator. even boot disks are not dos disks.
