I decided to go ahead with a new install, because right now is the best
time to do it (before the TV season starts).

So I started the install for CentOS 5 and find that my only options for
file system are ext2 and ext3. Do I need to install the system as one of
these on a smaller partition, then add support for JFS afterward, then
use the rest of the free space? That seems to be the case, but want to
make sure.
