journaling?

I remember that Panther uses a Journaling File System. Does that mean for optimal performance you should do a clean install so it can reformat the hard drive using the Journaling File System?

Journaling will make you run slower than you do without it. You proally already know that though.

Supposedly for 10.2x Server, but applicable in Panther as well.

journaling

If you want journaling you do not need to reformat, or install from scratch, it is something you can enable at any time, on an Mac OS Extended Volume you can simple "enable journaling" in the disk util.

I have not figured out how to turn it off though, so make sure you want it.

You can turn it off in Disk Utility too. It's under the File menu, just not on the toolbar. Although, you shouldn't turn it off. Journaling is a very good thing.

Good for stability. I've got a PowerBook with a 4200 RPM drive. I'm debating whether or not to turn it off. On one hand, Apple makes it sound like it only matters if you value stability over speed and/or if you run a server. Neither of those applies to me. On the other hand, Apple wouldn't have it on by default without a reason.

Advice?
