Hi Folks,

I've just bought an 80GB external drive and was hoping to have an HFS+ partition and a FAT32 partition.

However, I can't seem to get Disk utility to play ball. Any ideas?

Thanks,

biscuit

It's doable (search macosxhints.com), but it's a hack, and not recommended.

Thanks tooki. I've decided to go with HFS+. I'll have to use MacDrive on my wife's PC but it won't kill her...
