You can defrag your FAT32 and create another ntfs partition on the same drive (as an option).
MacOS X is based on FreeBSD. Any *NIX variation can read-write to ntfs including MacOS but you need to manually configure your fstab (file system
table) which if you have never done can be a PITA (command line interface).
Here is a link to CNET
explaining how to do this. So there is
your other option: convert the entire drive over to ntfs and edit your Mac's fstab to mount the drive.
Good luck! Keep us up to date to tell us what you decided on doing!
[ETA: One more thing! Defrag the partition first!
Before you decide on converting it over at the very least defrag it. If you can, back it up.]
