    A hard disk isn't NTFS. A partition, on the other hand, can be NTFS. You can't make a partition inside another one, so, no, you can't make a FAT32 partition inside your NTFS partition. You can, however, decrease the size of your NTFS partition and make a FAT32 partition besides the NTFS one, on the same hard disk. I requires a special program to resize a partition, though.

    One common such program is PartitionMagic, but I've recently heard on this forum that there is another (free of charge) one called Boot-IT NG or something like that.
