Reiserfs is also journalled so should be ok, but if you get corruption on
an ext3 partition you are ok. If it doesnt work out you can casually flip to
ext2. You get corruption on a reiserfs file system (which yes shouldnt occur
as its journalled) and you won't be getting anything back except off tape.

I also still get a few 'it locked up' SMP reports with 2.2 reiserfs
that stop when they use other file systems. So I (personally) don't quite
trust it as far - although it probably would be faster than ext3.

Even if going IDE is both cheaper and faster ?
