External HDD formats

Techy HUKDers...I need your advice!

A colleague asked me yesterday whether he could purchase one external HDD and back up both his Windows and his Mac computers onto it.

I don't have enough knowledge of Mac to know whether PC and Mac use the same file system - can anyone answer that for me?

If the answer is that they use different file systems, if you partition an external HDD, could you format the different partitions to use diferent file systems?

Lastly - do Macs have USB connectivity - or are they all still FireWire?
