I think Mr. Fisher was refering to adding in the compressed MSDOS
filesystem support into Linux. The compressed ext2 is a neat feature
that I have not played with and should be usefull for limited LINUX
systems, but that does not help if the system has to access a compressed
DOS filesystem. Linus et. al., I would like to second the addition of
the dmsdos compression into the 2.1.X kernel ASAP. (Maybe even add the
ntfs as an ALPHA option?)
