Yes it is the [default] reiserfs. I have done quite a bit of research on
Linux FSes since posting this and wish there were a clear choice. I guess
all I can do is try each (particularly xfs and jfs) and see which gives
the most reliable FS.

I understand the need to boot from a rescue CD/floppy to repair a FS but
can, for example, reiserfsck --check be run on a running system or does
even that require using the rescue system? (I read the man page on
reiserfsck and could not find the answer.)

Thank you,
