hi ricardo

filesystem comparasons	

i think ext3 is better than reiserfs

i think ext3 is not any better than ext2 in terms
of somebody hitting pwer/reset w/o proper shutdown
	- i always allow it to run e2fsck when it does
	an unclean shutdown ...

	- yes ext3 will timeout and continue and restore from
	backups but ... am paranoid about the underlying ext2
	getting corrupted by random power off and resets
