I just like throwing out non-factual information to keep people
guessing.  As it turns out, the partition I copied a large tarball to
was in fact FAT32.  I was sure it was NTFS v5, but now I'm not so sure
because I have a dialog in front of me saying that it's FAT (but can I
REALLY trust a dialog from Microsoft?).
