WD did you use any special options to create your partition, and/or to mount
it?  I've heard about using notail on mount, but just curious what
particulars you used because I may use reiserfs when I get a new drive here
soon...

I just switched my store from ext3 to reiserfs, and I like the change!
Channel changing time is significantly faster, and deleting recordings is
much faster too.

Maybe this should be put in the documentation somewhere.  I remember
researching which filesystem to use at the time I was setting up my MythTV
machine, and I couldn't find any definitive answer as to which would be
better in the case of a PVR.
