    I totally forgot about that program. I saw that a couple years ago and never tried it out because I was hooked on using Netware. I will have to give it a try now.

    I love Netware......We use it at our Corporation. I had netware 5 up and running for a while at home but wanted to go back to focusing on Linux. Novell is now porting alot of its Netware services to Linux and there is suppose to be a certification available by the end of the year.

    With the colabaration of Samba and Novel problems with NTFS - EXT2-3 will be a thing of the past.

    ext2 and 3 were already out the door. Most people i know use reiser anyhow, and i know a couple of people who are quite.... brave and use XFS. They really like it.

    I'm still running ext3, and am not sure how reiser could benefit me. Could you expound the benefit and advantages of reiser?

    Ok, so they are for me. I never really use ext3 anymore, (and have no desire to unless i have to) and ext2, well lets say no way! i waited for an fschk after a crash once too many times. Reiser for me is just what i like.

    For newbs anyhow, perhaps ext3 is better because most utils are already compatible.

    Take my advice with a grain of salt, perhaps one could say i'm slanted!

    Oh, and if you want some info on ReiserFS, then check out http://www.namesys.com

    Its the home of the authors of ReiserFS, and therefore prettymuch the definitive source!

    I've been using Linux since 1.13.xx days (around 1995) and ext2fs, and I found ext3fs pretty reliable. However, I'll check that site that you mentioned. Thanks.
