I was using XFS on a FC3 box until a week ago. I've now moved to a FC5
box with JFS instead of XFS and have had no problems so far. From what
I can gather ext3 seems pretty good these days too as long as it's got
some patch in it which allows fast deletes (I think). I don't know how
you check whether it has the patch, though.
