Can I change file systems within a partition from GParted?

http://askubuntu.com – When trying to complete my Ubuntu 12.04.1 install I recently received the error message: "The file system type fat32 cannot be mounted on /home, because it is not a fully-functional Unix file system. Please choose a different file system, such as ext2." Is it possible to select the ext4 file system for this /home mount, continue with the full Ubuntu install and then change the /home mount to the NTFS file system using the GParted application? The intent of this partition is to enable file sharing between Windows 7 and Ubuntu. Thanks in advance. (HowTos)
