With 9.2 we had
issue where it had a strange bug where it would take 15-25 minutes to
reboot because EVERYTIME it booted the system it wanted to run
reiserfsck against the 1.8T data partition.

Why would it take that long to run reiserfsck? reiserfsck always runs on every boot, because it shouldn't take any time at all, regardless of the size of the partition. It just replays the journal log, unless you're running it manually. For reiserfsck in itself to take that long I would consider a bug

Wasn't there a problem with SATA back then?
BTW Anders, my 9.3 USB problems - modules not loaded and needing "mount /proc/bus/usb after manually loading the modules - were fixed by a reboot of the SuSE kernel and on 2.6.12-rc3 with the usual initrd modules compiled in, it needed an initrd as initrd when run says it's done something with udev, loaded udev module or something like that.
This XP3000+ box and the x86_64 laptop are fine, I'll have to reboot the P-II/333 and see what gives on that.
