The KISS-rule applies in my case, I know. 8-) Just thought I'd check with you
guys if there's something else than the default ext3 one should look into.

A friend of mine running mythtv, swears by ReiserFS, or if it was xfs, can't
recall exactly. Anyway, one of those fs's is supposedly better with large
files than ext3 is. That's what got me asking.

You're right though, the best all-round solution is ext3. Like Toby said
earlier, it's there and it works.

Thanks for the feedback.
