    DESCRIPTION

           When, as is customary, the proc filesystem is mounted on /proc, you can
           find in  the  file  /proc/filesystems  which  filesystems  your  kernel
           currently  supports;  see  proc(5)  for  more  details.   If you need a
           currently unsupported filesystem, insert the  corresponding  module  or
           recompile the kernel.
    
           In order to use a filesystem, you have to mount it; see mount(8).
    
           Below a short description of a few of the available filesystems.
    
           minix     is  the  filesystem  used  in the Minix operating system, the
                     first to run under Linux.  It has a number  of  shortcomings,
                     including a 64MB partition size limit, short filenames, and a
                     single timestamp.  It remains useful  for  floppies  and  RAM
                     disks.
    
           ext       is  an  elaborate  extension of the minix filesystem.  It has
                     been completely superseded  by  the  second  version  of  the
                     extended  filesystem  (ext2)  and  has  been removed from the
                     kernel (in 2.1.21).
    
           ext2      is the high performance disk filesystem  used  by  Linux  for
                     fixed  disks as well as removable media.  The second extended
                     filesystem was designed  as  an  extension  of  the  extended
                     filesystem (ext).  ext2 offers the best performance (in terms
                     of speed and CPU usage) of the  filesystems  supported  under
                     Linux.
    
           ext3      is  a  journaling version of the ext2 filesystem.  It is easy
                     to switch back and forth between ext2 and ext3.
    
           ext4      is  a  set  of  upgrades  to   ext3   including   substantial
                     performance   and   reliability   enhancements,   plus  large
                     increases in volume, file, and directory size limits.
    
           Reiserfs  is a journaling filesystem, designed by Hans Reiser, that was
                     integrated into Linux in kernel 2.4.1.
    
           XFS       is  a  journaling  filesystem,  developed  by  SGI,  that was
                     integrated into Linux in kernel 2.4.20.
    
           JFS       is a  journaling  filesystem,  developed  by  IBM,  that  was
                     integrated into Linux in kernel 2.4.24.
    
           xiafs     was  designed and implemented to be a stable, safe filesystem
                     by extending the Minix  filesystem  code.   It  provides  the
                     basic  most requested features without undue complexity.  The
                     xia filesystem is no longer actively developed or maintained.
                     It was removed from the kernel in 2.1.21.
    
           ntfs      replaces  Microsoft  Window's  FAT filesystems (VFAT, FAT32).
                     It  has  reliability,  performance,   and   space-utilization
                     enhancements plus features like ACLs, journaling, encryption,
                     and so on.
    
           proc      is a pseudo filesystem which  is  used  as  an  interface  to
                     kernel  data  structures rather than reading and interpreting
                     /dev/kmem.  In particular, its files do not take disk  space.
                     See proc(5).
    
           iso9660   is  a  CD-ROM  filesystem  type  conforming  to  the ISO 9660
                     standard.
    
                     High Sierra
                            Linux supports High Sierra, the precursor to  the  ISO
                            9660   standard   for   CD-ROM   filesystems.   It  is
                            automatically recognized within the iso9660 filesystem
                            support under Linux.
    
                     Rock Ridge
                            Linux  also  supports  the System Use Sharing Protocol
                            records  specified  by  the  Rock  Ridge   Interchange
                            Protocol.  They are used to further describe the files
                            in the iso9660 filesystem to a UNIX host, and  provide
                            information  such  as  long  filenames, UID/GID, POSIX
                            permissions,  and  devices.    It   is   automatically
                            recognized within the iso9660 filesystem support under
                            Linux.
    
           hpfs      is the High  Performance  Filesystem,  used  in  OS/2.   This
                     filesystem  is  read-only  under  Linux  due  to  the lack of
                     available documentation.
    
           sysv      is an implementation of the SystemV/Coherent  filesystem  for
                     Linux.   It  implements  all of Xenix FS, SystemV/386 FS, and
                     Coherent FS.
    
           nfs       is the network filesystem used to  access  disks  located  on
                     remote computers.
    
           smb       is  a network filesystem that supports the SMB protocol, used
                     by Windows for Workgroups, Windows NT, and Lan Manager.
    
                     To use smb fs, you need a special mount program, which can be
                     found in the ksmbfs package, found at
    
           ncpfs     is  a network filesystem that supports the NCP protocol, used
                     by Novell NetWare.
    
                     To use ncpfs, you need special programs, which can  be  found
                     at
