You may want to recheck your data. FAT32 is limited to 2 GB at best, I
understand. (1 GB in early versions, hence 1 GB maximum VOB size on
DVD-Video). For large files in Windows, NTFS is required.

Note, too, that it is not the OS but the filesystem which imposes the limit
in practice. Thus, one can run a FAT16 partition under XP - and one would
then be limited by FAT16, not by XP.
