Thanks guys,

I knew about the ext2 windows proggy, and as I said previously I don't run windows... at all... but it's interesting to see that there is now a reiser one also...

I think I will stick with ReiserFS over ext3 for 2 reasons.

a) I have used it extensively and had very little trouble with it.
b) I have not heard any reasons NOT to use it..
