Re: DO NOT USE Software Raid1 and Ext3

Just wanted to inform everyone that i was wrong, the problem was caused of
faulty memory, it is true a brand new hardware with brand new faulty memory
this is why my first thoughts was about ext3 and raid-1, the corrupted files
where reproduced also after switching to ext2 and after the first 48 hours.
I had to run memtest86 to find out that my memory was faulty, purchase new
mem faulty also, replace the last memory and everything worked just fine.

My apologies for driving some of you to the wrong direction, i am also going
to enable ext3 if i run into problems again then.....we'll see
