Initially installed with ext3, patched kernel (our network cards aren't
installed with the pre compiled) got everything working fine for 2 months.
Upgraded kernel and patch to the next version in March and lost all Ext3
support in the kernel.
I'm off to the datacentre tomorrow to install network cards in the servers
so we'll have one for internet traffic and one for internal ssh and backups.

Beyond loosing support with a kernel upgrade ext3, has proved fine on all of
our non vserver machines. I do like the ability for a server to get a hard
reboot and not need a 70 mile drive to the data centre to fix the file

I've got other customers in our rack using one of these. Very impressive.
Quite tempted to use one on an nfs server for backups etc.
