I have formatted that partiton to reiserfs.
Untaring was MUCH faster. Not on the same computer, but on
another one 10-15 minutes vs. 6-8 hours.

I have two questions:
1. What about the block size on reiserfs? The default is 4096.
Should not I change to smaller value? Or on reiserfs this thing
works differently?
2. df and du gave different results for the filesystem (10 GB
partition). "df -h" said that the used space on the reiser was
2.5 GB and about 7 GB was free (available). However "du -sh
freedb" reported 7.5 GB. Why is this?
