I wouldn't recommend XP Pro on that. You would not get any benefits from it over 2000. I would go with NTFS yeah, but do it by way of 2000 rather than XP Pro.

Also your signiture should be 5 lines if you don't mind

NTFS is the file system over FAT32.. FAT32 is older technology now.

Here is a brief article on the different file systems used by Microsoft:
