Hi Ralph,

What I do find astonishing is, that your fstab does not include a /boot
I was told, that you must have a /boot partition (it can be small, on my
box it is e.g. only 15.2 MB) as ext2fs, otherwise (using ONLY reiserfs)
you would run into difficulties.
I never dared to ignore this:-)
And never had troubles as described by you:-)

Cheers ..... Wolfi
