I hate you. As soon as I wrote my post I thought that exact same thing. I don't understand it myself. But I have known of an example of a program that wouldn't run on NTFS but would on FAT32. I have no clue as to why it makes a difference other than low level drive accessing.
On the other hand maybe my noodle is mixing stuff up like the dyslexic I imagine myself to be and am actually thinking about the capability of access Win2k drives fromatted in FAT32 from a linux or 98 partition.

However, I find it odd that any program would have issues with the file system. Isn't that something that should occur at a lower level than the applications would have to deal with. Something that should be handled via the operating system itself? I am sure w/ all you have handled with coding for windows, you can give some examples of why/why not SR.
