Use NTFS. Do not use FAT or FAT32.

Except for some unusual situations you should use NTFS.
FAT is rarely a viable option as the maximum volume size is only a maximum of 4GB. This would be very limiting with XP. The only time where FAT32 would be preferred would be on removable drives or very small volumes that are too small for XP anyway. It would also be necessary for volumes that need to be accessed by DOS or Windows 9x in a dual boot environment.

Fat would be faster. NTFS is more secure.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Use NTFS it is much more secure than FAT. Even if you don't utilize its full scope of features, the stability and reliability it offers make it the hands down choice.
