would this mean that at the same HIGH systemload, ext3 is notable slower
than ext2, because disk-IO is expensive? how would i measure throughput.
i would measure the time compiling a huge package with lots of files,
once with ext2, once with reiserfs, both times at runlevel 1.

collisions that make problems if only one system (reiser/ext3) gets
used? or is the mere existance of the kernelmodule enough (or does it
not compile).
sorry for such a load of questions.

i have some customers, that cannot switch to 2.4 yet, because they use
some custom network-modules, which are not available/compatible with
2.4. they would like to use some journaling system, but they ant to
decide for themselfes [that means, that some of them would use ext3 and
other reiserfs] :(
