[Zope] Data.fs 2GB problem ...

I don't think that is the case under Linux with a 64-bit userspace.  Someone
on this list (Bill?) had indicated it worked to have large files on ext2
under 64 bit architectures.  Sadly, that excludes UltraSPARC, because its
user-space is still 32 bit, but I guess this limitation doesn't exist on
Alpha, Itanium, or PA-RISC, but you may still need a 2.4 kernel for Itanium
if you are to use that as a platform.

Next year, my company is likely to migrate our ZEO Storage Servers to an
intel architecture from Linux/Sparc, and will likely use ReiserFS at that
time, since it has been in the mainsteam 2.4.1+ kernels, and is reported to
be stable on IA32...

Hi, Gitte !

Not sure about that. If you're using ext2 and a Kernel < 2.4.x or a
fIlesystem created under a Kernel < 2.4.x, you're quite out of luck,
sorry to say that. Check the list-archives for further infos.
