No, cbmfs is just the file system driver.  You could use any file system
on the disk, but it is not likely that anyone has written an ext2fs driver
for the C64. :-) 

And when it comes to ordering CMD hardware, they have an office in
Austria.  I don't know their address or prices, but when you order from
them, you only have the hassle with international money transfers.  I'd
like to order some 230MB magneto-optical disks from Germany, as they are
many times cheaper there than here, but all German companies I have asked
either don't reply, don't accept credit cards as payment or don't deliver
with Cash On Delivery.  The bank would charge too much for the money
