Yes. It is starting to make sense now. And the sarge system I have
on another machine, entirely in reiser, presumably has the reiser
modules compiled into its kernel.
So once I have upgraded my ext2 copy top sarge and then upgraded
to a spamking new sarge kernel, I should be able to clone it
onto a reiser file system and get it all to work.
Thanks. It's been good thinking with you. I'll post again when
I've managed to get things working -- or not. Presumably in a day or two.
