Is there a way to format an external hard drive to make it compatible with OS9, Panther (10.3), AND 10.5 without partitioning it?

I have an old 1st generation Power PC G4, a 1st generation Power PC G4 mac mini (10.3 / classic), and a MacBookPro Intel (10.5).

I need to move files between operating systems.

Thanks in advance for your help.

What filesystem does it use? As far as I know, HFS+ should work fine on all of the above.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
