For Linux, use Ext3, Reiser, XFS or JFS (Ext3 and Reiser are most popular). I use Reiser myself (and recommend it), choosing the right filesystem is just a matter of personal taste.
Rinning Linux from FAT32 is possible, but it's not a good idea. It's not designed for Linux or similar system and doesn't have all features. But you can keep your data on a FAT32 partition (especially during installation). Later, you can always copy all the data to one of Linux partitions and re-format FAT32 to a Linux filesystem.
