thanks everybody for the syntax :-)
one further question, regarding this:

what part of my file system benefits the most from running reiserfs?
right now, i have everything on one partition, but if i were to break
this up with seperate /home and / partitions, should they both be
reiserfs? in short, is it the operating system that benefits from the
reiserfs, or the directory where your sound files live? i haven't done
any recording at all yet due to my bad xruns, so it would seem [thus
far] that my root partition needs a faster file system. or would it be
better to use a non-journalling system for the root partition [as you
have above] and reiserfs for the /home partition where the sound gets
streamed to and from?
also, would one use a similar proceedure to the one you have described
to move the contents of a /home directory in the root partition to a
seperate /home partition?
thx + best,
