Suse Linux Enterprise Server 9 SP3

I've tried to create a large 5TB file system using both reiserfs and ext3 and both have failed.

I end up with only a 1.5TB file system.  Does anyone know why this doesn't work, what to do to fix it?

Others have suggested that  only XFS or JFS will work.  Is this so?
