Making New Drive Readable and Writable on Windows XP and Linux

I just got a nice big 200 gig drive for data (music, movies, etc.). I want to know if there is a filesystem that would be safe for Windows and Linux to use. Is this possible?

FAT32 is what you want for universal read/write capability.
