Hey, thanks for the reply!
The thing is, it's a 2.5" drive so it is highly likely that it is 5400rpm and highly likely that it spins even slower than that.

My main concern is the fact that I am now running a drive with FAT32 (which I abandoned using when I moved to Windows XP... so my questions were mainly meant to direct towards the "is FAT32 really a trustworthy and decent Disk Format to use. I have since repartitioned the drive to include a partition of FAT32 and a partition in Mac OSX Journalised Format so that I can use it with Time Machine.

Guess that my worries were a little silly to begin with
