Hi guys,

I have been given a dual PIII with 768MB RAM and I am going to install PostgreSQL on it, for data warehousing reasons. I have also been given four 160 Ultra SCSI disks (36MB each) with a RAID controller (Adaptec 2100). I am going to use a RAID5 architecture (this gives me approximately 103 GB of data) and install a Debian Linux on it: this machine will be dedicated exclusively to PostgreSQL.

I was wondering which file system you suggest me: ext3 or reiserfs? Also, I was thinking of using the 2.6.x kernel which offers a faster thread support: will PostgreSQL gain anything from it or should I stick with 2.4.x?

Thank you very much,
