  Correction: It can usually read most reiserfs partitions.  So, yes, you
can be the envy of all your friends till reiser drops a kernel in a way grub
doesn't like.  Or worse, stage2.  First case: just boot a different kernel
and finagle the filesystem.  Second case: I hope you made a grub floppy.

  It's not all rosy yet.
  Especially when you wander from the "standard" system.  I need to test
this again, but last time I tried to use grub on my home system it managed
to disable the bios's USB keyboard emulation. Leaving me keyboardless.
