    I think in Leopard, you can create another partition, then format it as FAT.

    Hi,

    Do you have to do that on the main drive? You could use additional HDD for your data.

    On the other hand, you probably will be able to partition your main windows partition while installing the OS. Pretty much like on a regular PC. Just delete the partition, make 2 partitions instead, format and install OS on one of them, leaving the second one untouched.

    Be sure not to delete the Mac partition though...

    FAT only supports 32 GB. What is it good for?..
