Sorry, meant namei but the ext2 filesystem is supposed to work with inode.
(I presume one would want to mount an ext2 it with /dev/sda=noprobe in the
menu.lst on boot to prevent running fsck).

Light load, 2.6 kernel, reiserfs, namei, file server, no client. Locked the
computer up. The /dev/md0 filesystem superblock was corrupted.

Since only RO volumes are on this machine, its expedient to use /vicepa thru
/vicepd and mount the individual drives separately. It's what afs is
designed to do anyway.

Well ... with 2.4 I observed corrupt data on linux software raids under high
load. I burned my fingers, wouldn't do it again. Never tried 2.6.
