Read Derek's text above again, carefully. It does not conflict with the
information given earlier. 

Server-side: no known limitations
Client-side: only ext2 is guaranteed to work (it is my belief that ext3
also works fine, however Derek suggests I am wrong; Perhaps there is
information to which I am not privvy but I believe ext3 is also fine)
