I might be mistaken here, but I didn't think that ext3 could support
large files.  I thought you have to go to XFS or reiserfs.

Our RedHat 8.0 doesn't seem to support Large file
system out of the box. We have a testing program
running on an ext3 file system, with both
_LARGEFILE_SOURCE and _FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 defined,
the lseek() function failed when the file pointer goes
beyound 2G. What's the steps to turn the large file
support on? and how do I know it is on?
