As a follow-up to this question, which fileystems can the Apple Airport Extreme interface wih via the usb port?

NTFS seems to be out, and FAT32 and HFS+ both seem to be in. Can anyone confirm that? Is there an official list of what it can and can't handle?

FAT16, FAT32 and HFS+ volumes can be mounted.

p.s.: if you want to format large volumes with FAT32, the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool will come in handy.
