Default Formatting FAT32 Drive questions...

So I am formatting a few of my drives to FAT32 because there is a mac user on my network that needs to write to my drives. There are 4 250 gig drives in an external enclosure connected by firewire.

Any tips?

I have a few questions. I'm using Partition Magic to do this, but it doesn't allow my primary partition to exceed ~200gig and i'd like to use all 250. Whats up with that?

Third, whats the best cluster size? Should i change it in PM or leave it as the default?

Thanks in advance
