7zip / p7zip can also create splitted zip-archives which you can unzip
with any normal zip. Or you could create self extracting versions. 7z

Ext2 is supposed to be on the same level with fat32 in terms of speed
and stability. It doesn't care much about own and mod but that's it.

AFAIK there is no ext3 driver,yet. But you can still mount these as

Reiserfs is readonly.
