Why are you thinking about NTFS?

I chose ext 2 (IIRC) when I setup my CenOS box because I wasn't sure what I was supposed to choose. I <think> CentOS gives a brief description of each file format and which they recommend using depending on what's going on that particular HDD.

As far as the NTFS goes, I am NOT thinking about using it. I have another existing 1.5TB drive already installed, that was originally formatted via Windows (thus NTFS). Once I get all my media copied over to the new drive, the old one will be reformatted in a native Linux format so I don't have to worry about mounting it.
