Hello,

I'm trying to find something which could be called 'Compressed File System'
for Unix machines (available in source code form). It should be completely
kernel-independent, i.e. should work on the NFS basis or something like
that.

One good example would be Cryptographic File System (CFS) package written by
Matt Blaze. Instead of encryption, I would like to have the same or similar
thing with on-the-fly transparent file-system compression. Of course, the
crypt feature would be welcome, but it isn't necessary.

Please, post here or reply via E-mail. Thanks,
                                               Kresimir

Anyone know where this is found?

Look for the "double" Linux compressed filesystem.  The doc says it
uses disk partitions or files for storage.  Try distributions/SLS/c3,
ALPHA/double, or patches/diskdrives.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM
