    Ok, so i'm planning on using my external hard drive to have 3 partitions (it's always plugged into my Macbook)
    1st, a ntfs or fat32 partition for installing XP via usb booting
    2nd. A ntfs partition for just general large file back up
    3. A Mac Journalled partition for Time Machine back ups

    The problem i have is i don't know how to partition my drive for NTFS partitions, and would just like some general advise about the things i have listed. Thanks in advance :)

    Download MacFUSE and NTFS-3G, then set up the partitions in Disk Utility. You'll be able to select an NTFS format from there.
