    Hey. I wouldn't mess with reading/writing off both OS's. I have read lots and lots of horror stories of people using NTFS drives with programs to read/write (I lost 13 thousand mp3s because of this but luckily had them backed up on my ipod) and I have read about a LOTTTTT of unstability with keeping the drive in FAT32 as well. I HIGHLY suggest formatting your drive to mac only read/write (NFS+ journaled) and investing in a flash drive to transfer things between the two systems. I'm just giving you a heads up now.
