When I first installed XFS (Andre: Obligatory Reiser suX0rs!) I kicked off a
kernel compile, started off Evolution and The GIMP and had some mailey stuff
being transferred.

Switched off.

Came up fine in no time. XFS is nice'n'fast, too.

I reckon a combination of the two would be worthwhile. RO the simple stuff,
and use XFS for var, the mp3s themselves, yada. I use XFS as my root too, so
there's no hassles there.

                      army boots, but never undressed.
