Help! I'm looking for the best partitioning and peripheral solution to run Windows games (one that requires 11GB free HD) with the following gear: 2.4Ghz 15", 160GB 7200 HD, 2GB Ram + LaCie d2 eSata II 320GB External HD 3Gb/s transfer rate + Bootcamp + Windows XP + MacDrive 7 Problems: 1. FAT32s 4 GB file restriction rules out read-write cross-platform compatility for most games applications (HD requirements are huge). 2. What format (?) FAT32, NTFS, HFS+ do I use for the external hard drive so I can store and play Windows applications on it (games and photoshop primarily)? 3. Can I partition an external HD? If so, how? IOW, where can I store these bloated applications where I can use them mobilising the whole machine's CPU, GPU capacity BUT not giving over my entire internal HD over to Windows Apps? Please, if there's a simple solution to this problem, let me know. I'm not a technical type and want to make my new machine as flexible as possible. btw, I hate Windows' counter-intuitive architecture etc and want to stay out of it as much as possible. MacDrive7 seemed to offer a solution so I'm not sure whether it makes NFTS or HFS+ readable and writable from either side of the partition. Thanx in advance.
