all of linux's mainstream filesystems should work fine. the only one I
may not use(Depends on the size of the array) would be ext2. If you have
a 200GB array doing a fsck on it can take a long time. but it should still
work fine. same for ext3, reiserfs, xfs, and jfs(last 2 I have not tried).
reiserfs and ext3 are probably the most mature as a linux filesystem, ext3
being backed by Redhat, and reiserfs being backed by SuSE.
my filesystem of choice whenever possible is reiserfs. Only place I have
ext3 is on my laptop(for testing), and my redhat 7.3 box. everything else
is ext2 or reiserfs.
