There's Linux defrag, but there's no need to use it. Defragmentation in Linux is very small (in my case: less than 6% after 2 years).

Linus filesystems are better than fat32 as used in windoze in that fragmentation is not realy a problem. I have had reiserfs on this machine for well over a year no probs. I am sure ext2 & 3 behave the same.
