Had to use Reiserfs for the boot partition on the laptop here running

would not boot using XFS boot partition.

Using reiser for the /boot partition is usually a mistake, because a lot
of space is used for the journal. For a small partition, about 100 MiB, it
is better to use plain ext2 (not 3).

Hi .

Yep i realise that but i have this thing about the EXT series file systems i
have never had anything bot complete hassle from them so i would rather waste
a little space and use a filesystem i know and trust .

I only used XFS to test it out and play with a friend of mine wants an
MythTV system building shortly backend and 4 frontends the main storage
will be XFS .
