Very vague indeed. ;o)

/dev/md1 on /mnt/md1 type ext2 (rw,nosuid)

$ df /dev/md1
Filesystem 1k-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/md1 210042576 197033208 2339736 99% /mnt/md1

That is mission critical 210Gb ext2 over software RAID.

>(and that it does not handle files more than 2gig long).

uncertain, but reasonably sure... ;o)
