In Mass Memory mode, you COULD format on your PC as NTFS, however, the S60 OS cannot understand NTFS and would therefore not be able to use the mass memory afterwards,
so it's a pointless exercise - unless you deliberately wanted to hide content from the N97, and only access Mass Memory on PCs.

Personally, I only format Mass Memory (or MicroSD cards) using the Nokia tools built into the handset, to guarantee the best Nokia-compatible file-system is used during the format.
