Partioning a fat 32 section

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I have an external HD that I want to use for windows AND Mac...obviously...NTFS doesn't work. So I need to format it for fat 32 so both mac and windows can use it.....

How do I do this?

    Disk Utility can do that but it is called MS-DOS not FAT32,

    Note: files over 4GB won't work.

    A LAN would work. Mac can also read NTSF but not write. There is also software for PC that can read Mac formatted disks.
