    If you can wait for Montevina, do.

    You can make the Windows partition as large as your entire hard drive-OS X-5GB. You just can't use FAT32 bigger than 32, which is for the best, anyway.

    To add, if you want a larger HD, currently the largest is a Samsung 500GB one.

    I haven't seen it sold separately, but you can get it in an external case.

    You can have it any any size you want for BootCamp, provided you leave some room for OSX. If you play a lot of games, definitely go for 100gb or more for bootcamp partition.

    No, you don't need fat 32, NTFS is fine. (If you went out and bought any standard Dell or HP right now, that's what the drive would be formatted as).
