A few minor points

In your message of Fri, 11 Feb 1994 16:52:00 PST, you write:

xiafs might be a better choice for a long-names filesystem on a floppy.  Or 
minix with 30-character names.  ext2 is rather wasteful, and (as is often true 
with high-performance filesystems) gets worse performance in very limited 
spaces... not that you would notice, since the hardware is slower yet.
