Partition types in cfdisk

I've just installed a second HD to my PC, which is running both Linux (Peanut at the moment, but may change later) and Win98. I'm partitioning it using cfdisk, with both fat32 & ext2 partitions for either data to be shared by both OSs or some Linux only stuff. In cfdisk, which 'type' should be used for Fat32, should it be 0B or 0C (which has the LBA bit extra)? What does LBA mean?

Logical Block Addressing (LBA) mode. LBA places the addressing conversion used to find files on the drive in the drive's firmware.
