New iMAC! Need Help! How do I use my NTFS USB Drive?

Hi everyone, I just got a new iMac and I plugged in my external USB hard drive, I can read and copy files from it, but then I can't delete anything off of it? I'm told it's because it's formatted as NTFS, how can I make my new Mac use my drive as it is without formatting it just for macs? I'd like to still be able to put photos, music, etc. on it that I'd be able to plug into and view on PC's. Is there some easy (preferably free) way to do this?

Way to make Macs user-friendly, Apple! Frustrated

How To Format A Hard Drive To FAT32 In Windows 7 or Vista (or in general)

If you haven't noticed one huge change with Windows 7 is that FAT32 is no longer an option when formatting drives. You are now left with the options of either NTFS or exFAT. OK so your asking what is exFAT? Well its not FAT32, actually its compatible with FAT64.

exFAT vs FAT32

I was getting ready to format a external hard drive to FAT32 and the only option I have besides NTFS is exFAT. Any clue on what exFAT is and is it compatible with FAT32?

I was reformatting it for that one awesome DVD player to watch movies on but it has to be FAT32. Any clue? I'm too tired to google, nite.
