If you just want a simple file system, then the normal VFAT would suffice for most systems. VFAT is well documented and there are a lot of examples on the net. VFAT or exFAT might not be optimal for NAND and VFAT does a better job with eMMC with an on-board FTL layer.

Thanks. Yes, FAT is enough for the beginning. As a "dream" for farther stages, it would be very cool for me to get into NTFS of course, since my OS is (going to be) NT-like, but if not, then JFS2 or XFS. This is a wish list.) Too ambitious. My current target machine doesn't have neither SATA nor hdd anyway.


You may also consider ext2, IMO it's not much difficult than FAT in term of implementation complexity. It comes with design concept of meta data(which the FAT lacks without ugly hacks), this make life easier when you add ACL and other stuff into vfs, and your path to xfs might be easier.
