Thank you. I'm doing disk writes not nfs -- plain ide drive on 
an plain dell celeron box.  I see though that
'man fsync' does not come down to my level of literacy.

I'm quite reassured by your email and will turn on
-F switch in no time. Coupled with linux stability
I have a feeling that the probability of my losing any data due to
an os crash is smaller than that due to some natural disaster
striking the server.
