    vfat by default .

    But You can partition it any use any Linux File system you desire with suitable kernel .
    I have used ext2/3/4 ,reiserfs/4 ,JFS,btrfs and xfs as second partition with out any hitch :) .

    Any idea if it can read FAT32 or NTFS.
    I’m trying to preload a bunch of stuff from my PC and those are the options I have without more dicking around

    Linux can read all three FAT systems including FAT32 . Basically vfat is FAT32 .
