Did you slip here? My option that you cite is FAT32.

Not sure about the safety of read-write, but I've successfully mounted a NetBSD
partition from Linux read-only. That should be safe?
Linux could not read a FreeBSD disklabel. NetBSD partition had only the
sysinst default: root partition and swap partition. In the future, I think I'd
want a separate partition for /home; think that would be a good idea for Linux
too, using an extended partition in the case of Linux.
