Re: reiserfs vs ext3fs



	The best way is to choose the 2.4 kernel in the install. This allows
you to choose ext3 or reiserfs right there.
	If you dont do it this way, you have to upgrade the kernel later and
the only way i know of migrating the whole system is using tune2fs -j
/dev/h?? to migrate from ext2 to ext3. This allows you to migrate even
your root partition but for that you have to have the ext3 compiled in
the kernel (not as a module)
