Looking for some "suggestions" on the best options for mkfs'ing a 120GB drive.
I fdisked and created 1 partition for the entire 120GB. This is going to be
a "data" drive...I'm ripping all my CDs and storing them on my linux
machine so I can "jukebox" my songs. :)
I did a mkfs.ext3 (which puts the -j there for you) as follows:
$ mkfs.ext3 -v -T largefile4 /dev/hdc1
Now, is this good "blocksize/inodesize" for a single 120gb partition? Or
are there any tweeks anyone can suggest to make the best possible useage
for this large of a partition?
