or squid in accelerator mode - might even improve performance a bit.

hmm, never had reiserfs problems. I think both are fine, depends what you
wanna do.
reiserfs is probably better for
- huge directories (many entries)
- filesystems with many many files - it just won't run out of inodes, which
  is one of the main advantages for me
- disk space efficience (saves a noteable amount of disk space) - ok, not
  a big point these days.

ext3 is
- back and forward compatible with ext2
- has journaling even for file data, not only fs-metadata

We do hotswap on 3ware with common IDE Mobile Racks/Cases - no problems so far.
Note that you need only ATA66 specified cases since the 3ware (at least the
6xxx series) only do ATA66.
