FAT32 supports up to 2TB
Authored by: gabester on Aug 10, '09 11:10:32AM
FAT32 can support volumes up to 2TB in size. The reason to format in FAT here is to allow native copying of files to the Windows-based OS partition; however, it is also possible to do this with NTFS (highly recommended for better performance and windows security) with MacFuse and NTFS-3G.

Not to nitpick but I feel like this writeup has been done a few times before in different ways. Like this one, which just doesn't specifically talk about booting with Linux:

Disk Utility or diskutil can accomplish much of what this hint needs, but it won't work on the startup disk so you need to boot from another volume such as your OS X Install disc.
