Thanks, Barman58.

I am decidedly going to leave everything other than documents, music, videos, and downloads in C:\Users. I think that this is the best way to get around the permissions problem. As for the incapabilities of FAT32 (drive errors, file limit size, etc.) I'm going to use the open source driver implementation of EXFAT that I have found on Google Code. It's hosted here
exfat - Project Hosting on Google Code

If anyone else wishes to do this, they can compile the FUSE implementation from source for their system with the following code:
Code:
svn co http://exfat.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ exfat-read-only
cd exfat-read-only
scons
sudo scons install
Then edit the FSTAB to mount the "exfat-fuse" device at whichever mountpoint you like

Of course, you don't have to use scons if you don't like good stuff to happen automagically.

Cheers.
