Removable Hard Disk

The removable hard disk is being shared with a MS/WindowsXP host, and seems like it needs to be NTFS for access on the MS/Windows host. Attempt formatting with VFAT:

  # cfdisk /dev/hdd
    Partition type = 1B (Hidden W95 FAT32) ?? 
  # wajig install dosfstools
  # mkfs -t vfat -F32 /dev/hdd1

But can't be read on MS/Windows host yet/
