I recently reinstalled Knoppix yet again and chose to go with a different filesystem this time. I had been using EXT3 everytime, but read somewhere that Reiserfs and XFS are faster.

Is there a reason why choosing the file-system is left out of the newer installer script? I had to use knx-hdinstall in order to choose a different one. Let me know if the option is in there and I'm just missing it.

Also, is there any reason to avoid Reiserfs and XFS? I actually tried XFS first and the install didn't seem to finish correctly...which may have just been a coincidence. But I then tried Reiserfs and it went fine. It also does seem to be faster than EXT3 was.
