The new journal filesystems are a good thing, but I'm afraid that Reiser
doesn't have yet a good filesystem checker as e2fsck is; although is a
good filesystem.

I recommend you to use ext3 because of three reasons:

	1. is a journal FS

	2. You have e2fsck

	3. You can go back to ext2 when you want without making backup
	and reformat the partition. }:))
