Not RH8, but we have ftp.heanet.ie (or ftp.ie.debian.org) running
off a 2650 running 2.4.18 patched for XFS, version I'm using is
We had NFS running briefly, it worked fine for me :) XFS is
by far the best filesystem I came accross for large filesystems,
just make sure you plug your system with lots of RAM, it likes
to cache inoded, we have:
heanet at canyonero:~$ df -h /ftp
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdc1 2.0T 1.1T 1019G 51% /ftp
heanet at canyonero:~$ df -hi /ftp
Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/sdc1 2.0G 2.8M 1.9G 1% /ftp
which I have 4Gb ram for, works great.
