How can I set Mac OS X so that it doesn't create .DS_Store, .Trashes, and ._* files on USB drives I work with?

I have several USB drives that are all formatted as FAT32, so that I can exchange information with Windows systems.
I'd like to stop OS X from creating these hidden files, since they certainly aren't hidden to Windows. It's even worse when the USB drive is a friend's, and they've never heard of resource forks. What settings can I adjust to stop this?
