I have recently formatted the Root Directory of both my Linux PC and my Laptop as JFS. However on both my Linux PC and Laptop when I first boot up I am told that /dev/hda1 (/dev/hda1 is mounted as /)is not JFS and that mounting a volume which is not JFS can cause serious file curruption etc... I selected Y (for Yes) to mount it as JFS anyway and since it has not asked me anymore questions.
I was wondering why I was asked this since I formatted the partition as JFS, it also seems odd that this message has never come up on boot up since. I am also wondering if there is any potential threat to my data because I store homework and coursework on my laptop and if I lost that I would be a bit bu**ered to say the least!
Thanks in Advance
P.S - I am using Kernel 2.4.22 (the precompiled jfs kernel which comes with Slackware) Although I am compiling 2.6.0 on my P166 laptop at this moment!
