Yes, you can. In fact, I've done something very similar. I've got a 500GB drive formatted into two partitions; one is 250GB and backs up my mac via time machine. The other is formatted FAT32 and can be used in Windows. Therefore, when I plug my drive into a Mac, I see two drives; I only see one when I use a PC.
In order to accomplish this, you'll have to format your drive; this could take some time but it would be worth it.
Your drive has both Firewire and USB 2.0, so connectivity won't be a problem.
