It's not really a flaw, but FAT32 wasn't really designed to be used on large hard drives. In your case, Win 98 must've been a small HD, hence why FAT32 would work perfectly for your needs. I have a 200GB HD and FAT32 slowly degrades in performance over time. Also, there would be a lot of wasted space by using FAT32 on a larger HD.
I just wanted to say that I solved my problem by following the Macfuse method. I had to save my data to another hard disk, then format the drive in Mac format, transfer the files back to the newly formatted HD, and use the network and/or flash drive if I needed to transfer any data to/from a Windows computer. I decided not to get Macfuse because I barely use my Windows PC anymore. Again, this method works for me because I'm on the Mac most of the time.
