“I’m going to be honest. For this article, I was planning to show you how to get ext3 up and running on your system. Although that’s what I said I’d do, I’m not going to do it. Andrew Morton’s excellent “Using the ext3 filesystem in 2.4 kernels” page already does a great job of explaining how to ext3-enable your system, so there’s no need for me to repeat all the basics here. Instead, I’m going to delve into some meatier ext3 topics, ones that I think you’ll find very useful.” Part 8 for this great series of articles. Get links for the previous articles here.
