Hi all!

I'm installing slackware on what will be my companies webserver.  It's
not a huge place or anything, so this leftover k6-2/500 will do fine.
I've always gone with just the default choices on the install, but I
just got to wondering about all these new filesystems that are
available - ext3 and reiserFS spring readily to mind.  Are any of
these filesystems actually ready to use by newbies like me?  And if
so, what are the strengths/weaknesses of each?
