Which filesystem should I Choose.
I have been doing alot of tech work and have to back up files for people daily.
I decided to make a linux file server to store the customer files on as well as my MP3 collection.
The system will be a MSI KM4M with a Athlon XP 1800 and 256 MB of Ram.
I have 3 HD's a 9GB SCSI 10000 RPM Quantum. A 120GB Seagate IDE and a 80GB WD IDE.
The system will be connected to a 100Mb network.
I am not set on a distro but I think it will be SUSE/Mandriva or Fedora.
Not sure of what file system to use.
If I use Fedora can I use reiser to boot?
Most of the files will be less then 10MB in size.
I have been reading that ext3 is slow and that reiser would be faster but less stable with larger files.
The machine may have up to 4 people pulling files off of it at once.
Also I just remembered I would like to store a few Ghost images on it at 2GB in size.
I plan on doing the file sharing with Samba
