Default NTFS question

Okay, I have a question regarding the NTFS file system. SPAMI just got my hands on Windows XP RC1 and so I'd like to see what the hoopla is that M$ is clamoring about. SPAMI would like to use NTFS as the file system when I format the drive. SPAMHowever, I'd like to return it to FAT32 once I'm done reviewing RC1. SPAMSo, my question is if it is just as easy as running fdisk on the drive and deleting the primary partition (NTFS) and reformatting the new partition using FAT32? SPAMOr am I going to run into a ton of trouble from trying to convert the drive back to FAT32 from NTFS?

Here is an item from Microsoft about NTFS. SPAMIt is about NT but it may apply to XP as well. SPAMRemove NTFS
I'm running XP on one of my systems and it seems pretty stable so far. I kind of like the way it looks too.

They have already released a couple more version pass RC1 now. SPAMActually, they just released RTM and Microsoft hosted this big party in celebration of today. SPAMIn any case, let me know if you still want to gain access to RC1.

Windows XP is using NTFS 5.1, a minor upgrade from SPAMNTFS 5.0 that shipped with Windows 2000. SPAMThe easiest way to switch between NTFS and FAT32 is to use Partition Magic. SPAMIt will do the deed without losing data. SPAMKeep in mind your hard drive has to be "basic", as set in Computer Management. SPAMAs well make sure you're not using disk ratios or encryption.
