     I believe Florin Andrei had a typo in his message.  No other file system
will be as reliable as *XFS*.  I've had XFS recover from system failures that
Ext3 would/could not recover from.  If you want dependability, reliability,
and also large file systems, only use XFS.  You'll find none better.  You
should also be using the 64 bit kernels as well, but then, you want that for a
whole lot other reasons anyways.
