External Hard Drive FAT32 Partiton Size Limit.

I have two identical Vantec Nexstar external HD cases (USB/1394). One
has a Maxtor 200GB drive, divided into two 100GB FAT32 partitions. The
other is new, and I put in a 250GB WD drive. Neither XP, nor the WD
software, will allow me to have larger that a 32GB FAT32 partition. I
can have eight 31GB FAT32 partitions just fine, but not one or two
large partitions.

Is this a limit of the WD drive? I know that it's not the external
enclosure.
