You could put ext2/3 on it and use this in Windows ->
I've never tested it though.

At one point a year or so ago, i mounted a ext2 filesystem on a win2K machine. It did work.
However, the reason I asked about VFAT is I wanted to have a USB drive that could be removed from
the samba server and used on (pretty much) "any" windows/linux computer (without installing/modify
the recipient computer).  VFAT gives me that (unfortunately).
