    Defrag?


    Running Lindows (no overt laughter, please); can't find a defrag utility. I'm new to Linux. Is defrag run through command line? Is it even necessary? If I enable S.M.A.R.T. in BIOS, will I achieve the same results? Any help would be appreciated.
    (I did run a Google search; found mixed results. Lindows is Debian-based, according to the FAQ pages)

    Don't need to defrag ext2/3 filesystem.

    Also, rest assured that S.M.A.R.T. has nothing to do with it. S.M.A.R.T. is a system that tries to predect hard drive failure, and while that's a good thing, it has nothing to do with speed enhancements.
