linux on external hd on ntfs and fat32

I am wanting to install ubuntu on my external HDD after my windows attempt failed (but thats a different topic). Will ubuntu install and run on an ntfs file system? Secondly my external drive is partitioned 30 GB (will be Linux, ntfs) and 200GB (has backed up data, ntfs at the moment but going to format it in FAT32 [sub note: isnt the max partition size for FAT32 only a couple of GB so will it work?]). My internal HDD is a mixture of everything and I am maxed out on partitions on that one, so forget about that. I heard of ntfs-3g but it doesnt look straight forward to install.
Any feed back would be welcome.
