    Partitioning with EXT and XFS


    I'm creating 3 partitions. Boot, swap and everything else. I'm wanting to use XFS for my everything else partition. I'm not sure what to use for my boot partition. Does it make sense to use a journaled FS like XFS or should I use EXT2 or something else? I'd like to use the most efficient method.

    i would use ext3 (ext3 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
    its a journaled file system and is pretty much the standard on most distributions.
