One other point to keep in mind - whatever file system you pick, it
has to be one that Grub understands. It is possible to use a file
system Grub does not read, but you have to re-install Grub every
time you update the kernel, change the Grub menu, etc. (Unless you
are not using Grub as your boot loader.)
