New External-- help.

Just purchased new Seagate 320 gb. external.
Two questions please.
1. It is showing as FAT 32 format.
Do I just right click on the drive and format or what?
2. 320 Gbs is showing in 'properties' as 298 Gbs.
Used space 32kbs.
I know the size alway differs, but is this a big difference? Will it change when I get into NTFS?
Thanks.

VoG.
Thanks.--Nothing too simple then?!
Will work through it.
Trust that all applies to an empty H.D.?

Thanks for the help.
In actual fact I found that all I had to do was to right click on the drive/format/select NTFS.
A bit simpler--should any one else want to know.
