When copying large files to a locally mounted ext2 filesystem my system always locks up. Is this a known problem in 64bit mode?
Just curious: what is the drive interface with the ext2fs? IDE?
Yes, it's the normal IDE interface (ATA UDMA133 drive).
The very same hardware is now on 32-bit mode FreeBSD 5.3-stable, without any problems at all.
Which filesystem is recommended for multi-OS file exchange?
I've heard enought reports of ext2 problems on 32-bit i386, that I don't trust it in situations that "have to work". By far the most widely supported FS is vfat32 [mount_msdosfs(8)].
The last time I had to use msdosfs, on 4.* it was extremely slow compared to UFS on the same disk. Did this get better on 5.*?
I want to use the filesystem for my music collection, so I'm willing to trade fastness for reliability.

vfat32/MSDOSFS is going to be the most supported, seeing as I can mount these types of filesystems on just about every OS out there. Regarding speed, there's a pretty big tradeoff, but even if it reduces drive I/O by %50, you're still above the speed of a 10/100 NIC, and certainly above the speed an MP3 streams at. (You're right at the limit, for DVD Video) In short, yes, it will be slower, but for the purposes of storing MP3s, and whatnot, the speed tradeoff is inconsequencial(sp), and it beats loosing everything every once in awhile.
