Well, I was running Gentoo, but I ran into a little problem with XFS.
Seems as though there was some problems writing the journal, or
something, on one or more partitions. I didn't take heed the advice on
the Gentoo web site for adjusting some parameters to mkfs.xfs. I guess
ext3 could be a decent-performing filesystem, with a little tweaking.
The "noatime" option to mount is one such tweak. I think RedHat had
some tips on optimizing the performance of ext3, by adjusting the
metadata parameters, etc.
