10.4: Disable Spotlight on a FAT32 external drive
Authored by: mstoops on Aug 25, '06 07:54:48AM

Nothing personal, but he's right: second graph, second sentence:

...To create the file, I just issued the command touch .metadata_never_index from Terminal (make sure you're at the top-level of the volume, obviously).

If you're using an external drive, make sure to "cd" the the correct location before issuing the "touch" command.

cd /Volume/<volumename>

Use quotes around the path if there are any funky characters or spaces.
