521<b>ReiserFS</b> works only partially on sparc64 systems and is therefore not
522recommended for general use. <b>XFS</b> should be avoided, as it is known to

524filesystem, <b>JFS</b>, is not supported. Regardless of your decision for
525filesystems, the bootloader requires that the root partition be either ext2 or
