mkisofs -dvd-video from a fat32 filesystem

>> 2gb filesize limit.

The 2gb filesize limit was shattered a long time ago.  I've got a RH7.3 box
and I just created a 2.6GB file on an ext3 partition without a problem.

Command terminated by signal 25
^ 2gb filesize limit.  I originally assumed the limit was the fat32
filesystem, but someone mentioned I might need to patch something.

And the author of dvdbackup says it wouldn't have worked anyway (without
mkisofs doing the sorting).  

So with ntfs write support still being "DANGEROUS", is there no filsystem
that I can write over 2gb files to from both linux and windows ?  
(these DVD blanks are 4.7gb)
