Yes, ext3, xfs, reiserfs and jfs are all journaling file-systems. If you drive has genuine
problems, they won't help you recover any better or any faster, but a 300Gb JFS filesystem will
recover a lot faster from an unscheduled outage than a 300Gb ext2 ditto.

JFS is IBMs Linux-port of HPFS w/journaling from OS2 Warp Server, and as such it goes quite way
back.

Incidentally, JFS is one of the things that SCO is claiming as a derivative work from Unix. Last I heard, Judge Kimball has all but reached the point, where SCO has to "put up or shut up".
