but did not do the tune2fs and the df -h
do I need these?
The "df -h" command just shows you information about your mounted disks. on my computer, it looks like this:
[jaymz@localhost jaymz]$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 2.9G 257M 2.4G 10% /
/dev/sda1 4.8G 2.2G 2.4G 47% /home
none 125M 0 124M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda3 2.5G 1.6G 880M 65% /usr
/dev/sda2 3.8G 1.2G 2.5G 32% /usr/local
/dev/sda3 8.2G 33M 7.7G 1% /backup
what the "tune2fs -j " command does, it converts the filesystem from ext2 to ext3. ext3 is just an extension to the standard ext2 filesystem, except it supports journaling, which provides better protection against filesystem corruption.
