Yeah, sounds like a plan. Lee and Fernando are both a great help. I do
this only about twice a year. I did it last October and have been
running at sub-3mS since then on 2.6.9. However all learning I did is
long lost. Must start over again.

I've heard nothing about ext3 problems. Then again I subscribe to very
few lists these days.
