I was wondering: what is the differeneces between ext2/3, xfs, and any others I havent heard of? What advantages/disadvantages do they offer?

The short story is that ext2 is the older Linux filesystem, ext3 is a newer version that includes journaling (possibly better data recovery) and Reiser is a newer journaling filesystem.
There are said to be some differences in the performance of ext3 versus Reiser depending on whether you normally use more small or large size files.
So normally a choice of ext3 or Reiser would be best, something else if you have a reason for it.
Good Luck.
