Getting a 60 gig HD .mov file from Mac to XP

A friend has finished a 72 minute movie on his mac and borrowed copy of FCP and has never authored either a bluray or DVD. (Source was a Sony FX1, so probably 1080x1440 30i and probably 60 gigs) I've done lots on CS2+CFHD so what should I look for? I just told him we need an external drive formatted FAT32, but now I read file size is 4gig max.

1) could he write to my XP "shared" folder under NTFS?
2) way around FAT32 limit or another approach
3) Install a patch on his machine and write to NTFS drive, albeit slowly
3) problems importing his .mov file ... like byte order issues?

Help appreciated.

Local GigE network is the easiest.

Mac support for NTFS is another way.

Get a drive to format as UDF is another way. Infinity Rev Pro drives use UDF and that is cool. I would like it hear how to do this on any drive as UDF is cross platform and supports very large files.

No issue will MOVs. If put CineForm data in them, you can quickly re-wrap using HDLink to an AVI.
