What filesystems are available to Slackware 9.0 and what do you recommend (on a desktop machine), the partition is only 5gb.

Ext2, Ext3 and ReiserFS are all I saw in Slackware 8.1, is XFS available now? Which is better for a desktop machine, performance is a must.

Thanks in advance

Ext3 is ext2 with journaling and it has been working very well for me.
