ext3 is the default with redhat-7.2.  Grub has some extra functionality
and awareness of journaling filesystem, I don't recall if it's ext3's or
reiser though.

Either, but not both here.

Devfs seems like a big win on a diskless linux box/thin client, 
I wouldn't recommend it in general (yet), I've seen numerous strange
bugs because of it, from network drivers, video card drivers and
keyboard drivers.
