OS X Generic DVD Can't see FAT32 HDD

So I used the OS X Disk Utility while in the installation menu to format my hard drive to MS-DOS (FAT32 right?) and it isn't available on the list of volumes to install os x to. What am I doing wrong? AFAIK you can install OSX to a fat32 filesystem right? It simply isn't on the list of avaible places to install :P


Also, I understand that anything running of a cd / dvd is slow esp. fancy GUI stuff but why does it take so long to reboot?? i basically had to press reset after it took so long.


I wanted FAT32 to transfer files i download on windows to my mac drive! I cant do this with HFS+ because i dont own macdrive and the trial got F*((* and expired. also transmac doesnt see the drive. period.

Any help would be appreciated. :D Flames just keep it to yourself as I'm new to all this.



my rig:

AMD Athlon 64 3500

Asus A8N-Sli Deluxe

Geforce 7800 GT OC (BFG)

Antec 500w PSU

windows xp sp2 on 120 gig sata drive

os x generic dvd on 80 gig
