ntfs/ntfs-3g is foolhardy at best in linux *and* fbsd ... it's trashed so
many drives.partitions on me it's not even funny anymore... and I never did
much w/ them except small stuff anyway. If you need to access the volumes in
*nix/windows then why not FAT32 then? I use a FAT32 drive for my music so I
can access it in any OS reliably and the drive is now 6+ years old.
