     Agreed Steve and Lonnie. It's all my fault that I am on an ancient 
     code !
     But as they 'once bitten twice shy', I am yet to gather courage to 
     keep working with XFS.
     We have servers working on ext2/ext3 w/o a glitch. That's why I said 
     unless I see 'silverline on dark clouds' i,e those 'extra' advantages 
     XFS provide over others, I would like to play safe.

It is really difficult to have sympathy for you if you are running 2 
year old code. There have been a vast number of improvements in the 
code since then.
As for advantages/disadvantages, I will leave that to other folks.
