I just seem to remember some issue about no-tails. It might be something to do with the fact that the bios needs to read the kernel image directly from the disk during the boot, and if reiserfs packs tails together at the end of a partition, then it may not all be in sequence ???????? I am really not sure, but just remember some issue like this. Has anyone gone totally reiserfs? Cheers. Mark.
