Here.

When it comes to file systems, Linux® is the Swiss Army knife of operating systems. Linux supports a large number of file systems, from journaling to clustering to cryptographic. Linux is a wonderful platform for using standard and more exotic file systems and also for developing file systems. This article explores the virtual file system (VFS)—sometimes called the virtual filesystem switch—in the Linux kernel and then reviews some of the major structures that tie file systems together.

Have you found the articles by D. Robbins on various filesystem, written around 2001/2002 when kernel 2.4 had just come out? I was on there looking for those, and info to try and track all the changes for 2.6 the other day.

Anyone got good links to add, it'd be much appreciated.

And I was naive enough to try the IBM site search, which failed completely so I suspected they'd archived off those old articles for some reason.

Nice one, never heard of Clusty before!

Hi RobLinux,

Not all of the WWW is indexed by Google or some of the other main search engines such as Yahoo, MS, etc.

I use Firefox and have acquired a slew of search engines (I use FF) from the Mycroft Project.

Here are some of the other ones I use: ixquick, googlonymous, clusty, dogpile, blackbox, mamma, and altavista.

Also, there are specific domain search engines for fields like journalism and I'm guessing other domains of knowledge that I do not know about.
