I was just wondering..

If my iPod is formatted in FAT32, so i can transfer files etc.., will my mac be able to install all the updates my iPod will need?
Also will i be able to install progs like GoPod which removes the EU volume limit?

Any other issues with a FAT 32 iPod, other than the file size limit (and of course that element of Microsoft evil which will have infiltrated my mac world :ninja: )

I mean format as another windows format, not fat32, then it should work fine on both mac and pc.
