Few questions concerning harddisks and filesystems
Hi, Im running Debian sarge, with a newly compiled kernel 2.6.4. Have some basic questions?
It's running on a laptop with no more than 8Gb of space. How can i see how much space there is left on the different partitions?
Im using EXT2 at the moment, but i am planning to change to eighter EXT3 or reiserfs, which filesystem is preferred for my box. I only use it for school use and playing mp3?
Can u change from EXT2 to reiserfs without wiping all data?
In windoze i used to defrag regulary. Is this possible in linux, and how?
Do I need to recompile the kernel to use different filesystem?
Is it possible to use samba to gain access to a windoze workgroup, without installing any software on the windoze box. Just by entering workgroup, and then i can see all box's and shares?
I have seen some screenshots of different users Gnome desktop, and a lot of them has a monitor in the top panel, where you can see the current up/down transfer speed. Whats the name of this program?
Hope someone can help me out, im very funned of this linux box. And like tweeking around, and thereby learning some basics linux. Everything else is at last working, thanks to this forum.
