2GB of Waste? How can it be?



Dr. Tweedie, et al.:

	I recently formatted a partition using EXT3, and after a "df -h"
I get 14GB of space. When I reformatted the partition with ReiserFS, and
did a "df -h" I got 16GB of space!

	Now the partition was setup to be 16GB via fdisk, so 16GB is
correct. However, why does EXT3 loose 2GB of space? The journals cannot
be that big!?!
