not needed. The ext2 and ext3 (commonly used filesystems) don't need defraging.
Check out the fsck man page (ie. enter "man fsck") for details on the command that is used to keep ext2 andext3 file systems healthy.
Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS

You really shouldn't have to fsck, either, unless you fill up your partition to about 95%+ of its capacity."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
