I thought fat32 supported up to 2 terabytes?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fat32#FAT32

But windows can see 124 gig unless you don't need scandisk....

However MS format can only format 32GB

Now if you don't want to crate multiple partitions how about running MS in a
Virutal Machine like Vmware?  Perhaps then just use NFS and samba?
