I thought ext3 had a gernaling system too.  If not I would like to do a fresh install using either ext3 or Reiserfs.

Hopefully this can be done as I would like to get rh 7.2 back up and running soon.

move everything back. The other nice thing is that reiserfs has a journaling system, meaning no more of those long fscks at boot up. It has been in kernels since 2.4.1.
