Problems with FAT

i'm having some trouble mounting my second internal drive with permissions for me to read write. I can read, and sudo can r/w. i'm also wanting to share partitions with an os x user via nfs or samba, so advice on what kind of format for the partitions would work best would be helpful. right now I have two fat32 partitions and one ext3. i don't mind reformatting. please let me know what outputs to post. thanks
