i'd reformat everything in ext3 or fat32 (i don't enjoy linux's support
for ntfs) then examine the sharing permissions (samba?  nfs?)  i'd also
google a little more and use the UUIDs in my fstab to cement those
drives to being mounted on boot to the same spot every time.  i might
also put a disklabel on them but generally i don't bother for drives
which are part of a system and aren't detached and moved.

but that's just what i'd do.
