I'm gonna put a plug in for SGI's xfs here.  It's a truly journaled fs,
fscks in under a second, and I've never lost a file due to OS crashes.  It
also has the ability to grow on the fly.  It's been around in IRIX for
at least 4 years, and I've used it on rather large volumes (+-500GB).
That being said, I've never tried to use it with InterMezzo, so it may
well not work.
