Nothing yet.  I tried to compile from his source here using gcc 2.95 and
3.0, but both fail.  I have found out that you have to have the reiserfs
patches applied, but I suspect there is something else.  It now bombs
out around the part that makes "env.o" rather consistantly.  I wish I
knew more about programming....I have forwarded all my info to Stepan,
and am sort of at his mercy.  I can't compile anything here, and the
pre-compiled versions don't work.

As an aside...are you certain that the milo that comes with Potato
doesn't support the newer ext2fs??  The version I have here
(milo-2.0.35-c7b) seems to support all the stuff I have thrown at it,
and I am pretty sure the change logs on this version note this support
was added.  It appears to originate from Nikita Schmidt's work, and is
located at ftp://genie.ucd.ie/pub/alpha/milo.  Am I wrong here??
