    A buddy of mine became a switcher today. I'm wondering what is the best way to transfer the files from his PC to the blackbook?

    He has an external HD that is formatted FAT-32. I know OS X formats external HDs differently, but will OS X still read FAT-32?

    If not, what is the best way to transfer the old data? How would I do that over the network?

    Read my guide, my friend...

    The short answer is that OS X can read and write to a FAT-32 drive as is.
