Agreed. ext3 is stable, quite fast enough (IF you're using kernel 2.6 and
enable all optionals) and it is extremely *safe*.  AND it has the best set
of recovery tools I know of, should you actually need them.

If you are doing a proper install where / contains not much more than /etc,
/lib, /sbin, /bin, /boot and a few other oddities (certianly not /home,
/srv, /usr, /var or /tmp), then you really are better off using ext3 there
for safety.
