But, if your MS-Win slice is just there for occasional convenience and
is not especially significant, converting NTFS to FAT32 is an easy way
to be able to write to it directly from FreeBSD. The alternative is
to create a 3rd slice that is FAT32 and use it as a communication stash.
FAT32 has its limitations, but it is quite usable under most circumstances
if those limitations are not important.
