You can either do it in two ways.
The first is to format it using HFS+ and when running Windows using Macdrive; the alternative is to format it using Fat32.
If you go Fat32, I have found the performance with Mac OS X pretty average - but the flip side if you go HFS+, MacDrive will set you back a few bucks.
In the end, I went with HFS+ and bought MacDrive, works wunderfully with Vista and XP.
