IF you are going to be using the same hard drive to instal Windows NT you need Fat32. Other than that do NTFS

I don't think you can use Win2000 or XP to format your drive FAT32 - I'm not sure how you install them onto a FAT32 partition, but I know it can be done.

NTFS is better anyway, as those OS's are designed to use it.

you can install win xp on a fat 32 system as i do but i only do this as i use a program called hyperos to swap from one o/s system to another.but if you are just using a normal system with 1 operating system then yes i agree with everyone else ntfs file system is better.but the xp disc will not give you the oppertunity to format in fat32 anyway only ntfs as this is what it was built on.unless you realy need fat32 its not worth thinking about.

If you are saying you don't have a valid XP key and you are running XP without at least SP1 and can't update you will get the msblaster or sasser worm before the day is out.
