    I'm going to partition HD then install XP-Home (dual boot).

    PM 8.0 lets me choose so which file system should I choose for XP-Home:
    NTFS or FAT32?

    I get it done with YAHOO! DSL!

    I like FAT32 for home systems, principally because it's a lot easier to use DOS boot disks to recover from problems. :) Either will work just fine. I also use a dual-boot to MS-DOS so I can automate stuff like GHOST backups under scheduler, which requires FAT32 on the C: drive.
