NTFS is definitly the filesystem you want though.
When I was first burning dvds about 4-5 years ago, I couldn't rip it as a single file in fat32 if it was a long movie. Back then we use to rip the dvd as a single file convert to avi and then shrink it, convert it to mpeg, then burn it as dvd or vcd.
you couldn't rip movies that were longer than 120 minutes back then
because of this limitation. that was why I bought xp when it first came out. most people were shying away from it at that time because it was buggy as heck. but you could rip long movies with it
eventually they would come out with software that could rip the dvd in it original 1024mb chunks and burn those vob files properly, but back then they didn't have that
