Please go with XFS or ext3.  There are a number of blessed and horror
stories which still float around about reiserfs (recent and old; even
though I've never lost data with it -- using it now even).

Might be worth testing FAT32 on NT as well.  Even if we don't advocate
it's use, it may not hurt to at least get an understanding of what one
might reasonably expect from it.  I'm betting there are people just
waiting to run with FAT32 in the Win32 world.  ;)
