I have an external HDD which I use to run VirtualBox. Its formatted to FAT32 and I hit the 4GIG size limit. Google tells me I should use NTFS.
I reformatted it from my Ubuntu to NTFS. Ubunut reads/writes fine.
When I plugin the HDD to my SnowLeopard I get a dialog saying the disk is not readable.
More googling suggests using NTFS-3G. Is this the correct approach?

What I want to do is get my HDD formatted such that
1) I dont need to worry about the 4GIG size limit
2) Should work with Ubuntu as well as SnowLeopard.
