RE: Rescue CD wanted: 2.6.10, SATA and XFS

I've been very happy with XFS and have migrated TOWARDS XFS all around, save
the boot partition.  BTW, being able to boot from XFS would be a nice touch!

What problems in particular are you experiencing with XFS and NFS/Samba?

OT, but IMO reiserfs is a huge stepbackwards from XFS...

Knoppix 3.9 comes with 2.6.11, so if your driver is in 2.6.10 you should be
fine. If you use BitTorrent the download should fly, according to the
tracker there's 400 seeds on the EN version.
