I'm using one big Mac partition for my giant mac files and a smaller
FAT32 partition for portability between Mac/Win/Linux. This works for
me, since I don't normally have to write giant files to the USB disk
from a Linux system - only the other way around. Both are readable on
both platforms. However, the need is sure to arise one day, to transfer
a big file from the Linux machine.
When that day comes, I will probably look into something like hfs /
hfsplus to write to the Mac partition. Or does anybode else have a
