If I have an external disk in a USB cradle that is formatted as NTFS under Win XP, can I access it and the files on it from a FAT32 system i.e. Win ME, and vice versa ? Suspect windows isn't bright enough to do this but would appreciate anyone with experience or knowledge confirming or otherwise this.

Updated version of Paragon NTFS for Windows 98! Now works with USB removable media!
