10.4: Disable Spotlight on a FAT32 external drive
Authored by: raymondlewisjone on Apr 18, '07 08:34:10AM

in terminal:

cd /Volumes/'name of drive'

However, if it is named the same as your startup disk you will want to use:

"Finder:Go:Go to Folder..." menu in the finder, then type in /Volumes. Find the name of the volume there and use use that in the terminal.

Or you could:

touch /Volumes/'name of drive'/.metadata_never_index
