Sorry, typed "ext2" and was thinking "FAT". My goof :)

I've found (through trial and error) that XFS is by far the best filesystem to use on the video partition for general use. It deletes instantly, almost never seems to get fragmented or "busy" and generally is a nice FS to use. I tried ReiserFS (kept trying to rewrite journals while I was trying to watch TV) and ext3 (fragmented too easily for my tastes)... though I've been led to believe from a friend of mine that you can use an ext2 partition for buffers so long as you keep 'em below 2Gb.
	Why below 2GB?
