formatting my 160gb 7th gen ipod classic to fat32 for crossplatform compatability

I discussed this with someone on the apple forums & they suggested for crossplatform windows/mac compatability that I try formatting my ipod to fat32.

I have heard of mac os's disk utility, could it do this? & what steps do I take to do this?

would a fat32 ipod work with the mac version of itunes?

I am on a macbook pro 2010 running snowleopard 10.6.3

Pardon, but what does this have to do with the format of my ipod's hard drive? could you kindly explain? I am having a little trouble making the connection.

dffd.cffc replied to the wrong thread, don't worry :P

Yes, you can do this. When I restored my iPod mini under windows it formatted as fat32, I can now mount it on windows and OS X and sync with both windows and OS X. I'm not sure if you can do it without the windows version of iTunes, though.
