This book focuses on two different aspects of filesystems for Linux. First, local filesystems which use journaling are discussed, including SGI's XFS, IBM's JFS, Red Hat's ext3, and the ReiserFS. Distributed network-oriented filesystems are also discussed and include such systems as: NFS, the classic distributed filesystem originally written by Sun Microsystems and since ported to every Unix and Linux platform; OpenAFS, a version of IBM/Transarc's networked filesystem that was recently released into the public domain by IBM; Netatalk, the package for Linux interoperability with Macintosh filesystems; Samba, the package for Linux interoperability with Windows SMB filesystems; NCP tools (Novell Core Protocols), the tools supporting Linux interoperability with Novell's NetWare.

William von Hagen has been a Unix system administrator and fanatic since 1982 and an avid user of distributed filesystems since the mid-1980's at Carnegie-Mellon University. He has worked as a system administrator, writer, computing facilities operations manager, developer, development manager, documentation manager, and drummer. An avid computer collector specializing in workstations, he owns more than 200 computer systems (which the city of Pittsburgh requests that he never turn on at the same time).
