    im gonna give you a point for your filesystems nug
    what i was looking for were the 4 main linux ones (ext2, ext3, reiserfs and xfs)
    however im pleased you picked up UFS, which is the partition used by BSD

    a point for you mate

    unfortunatly your second answer was way off :)
    were looking for the special filesystems here, not the standard disk filesystems :)

    I think swap and root are partition types.

    The only other filesystem I can think of is NFS, Network File System.

    Ok a new rule
    so as to not let this game to stagnent, I will post the answer to unanswered questions after a random period of time i determine based on the difficulty of the question (read: when i get bored and figure theres no hope)

    hah :)

    I will get a point for every unanswered question that i have to answer, and let me make it clear, at the end of this, I want to be in LAST place by a long shot :D

    the answer is

    devfs (udev in modern distros) and proc

    both are 'special' filesystems that are REQUIRED for the system to function correctly, perhaps filesystem is the wrong term, but that is what i am led to believe it actually is :)

    so onto round 4!
