If you don't plan on creating files larger than 4GB, you can format the drives as FAT32 and they'll work without a problem on either system. But if you need to make files larger than 4GB, then format them as NTFS and install something called MacFUSE on your Mac to allow it to read and write to the NTFS drives.
