Maybe I'm just completely out of it, over here, but I'd stick with NTFS if at all possible.

The choice of FAT32 vs NTFS depends on the way the system is used, neither system is superior, or more reliable. I use FAT32 in everything, because more things can read it...

Coming from a Windows Administrator/Security perspective, I have a natural tendancy to desire to uses NTFS. Most of the time, though, I'm not trying to have a Linux system access it directly (meaning, not through a network). So I'm not really an expert in that regard. I just tend to prefer it over FAT32 because it offers more robust security than FAT32.

FAT32 is ok, but there's one big limitation. 4Gb filesize limit. Sometimes I get bigger file sizes than that with my video editing projects and DVD images.

I've succesfully installed MDK10 on my machine.

the problem is that my downloading speeds are low, and I experience frequent stalls during file downloading.

How I can fix this? Disabling IP V6 can solve this?
