I'm a bit of a newbie to Linux, setting up a Samba server for serving files to my Windows XP workstations.
At the moment thought I'm at a bit of a loss as to which filesystem to use for my Suse 9.1 Installation.
I believe my best options would be Ext3, ReiserFS and XFS. As far as I'm Aware XFS delivers best support for ACL's in Windows 2000/XP systems.
What are the differences between these file systems, which are the most stable/dependable, which provide the best throughput, and what would your recommendation be?
