Well, as long as it's not the root partition, and you don't have to do a manual fsck against it, it's ok, journaled filesystems save lots of time. Here's the but: BUT, if you ever did get corruption on that partition, and you had to forcs a full fsck of that partition, I wish you the best of luck, it's a nasty long process at that point, and it's a pain in the butt. I haven't spent much time with it, but would you rather create avolume group with some of the space and extend it out as needed? That way you areusing what you need, and not what you don't and the free space can be re-allocated elsewhere later if need be. I'm not remembering creating volumes on my lastbox I put up, it was more than a bit ago, but similar to LVM, or xfs, or AIX's FS, or HP's volgroups. Along with that, I believe there are other concerns with writing to and reading from that much formatted space on a single partition. I should read more on this, but no time right now, if I come up with more, I'll let you know.

Have a good day,
