Problems partitioning SDCard for Link2SD

I downloaded Link2SD to a rooted T1 to force installing apk on SDCard to make room in the main memory.

This requires having SD card with two partitions. Having a Mac, that cannot format to Ext3, I found on forums you can have both partitions as FAT32. I made a 500 MB partition on a 8GB SDCard and the second with the remaining 7.5GB.

Did the same on a mobile phone with the same Android version and worked as desired, with Link2SD automatically recognizing the smaller one once you tell it to look for a FAT32 one.
However, when I do this on the T1, the reader will only see the books when they are put on the smaller partition, while obviously I want to have them on the larger one.
Anyone has a clue? Should I name the two partition in a particular way?
