Yes, though it may not particularly easy to set up.

One way to do it is to install a minimal potato system on a small partition
(which you can later reuse as the swap partition), connect that to the net,
update with the packages from
(including reiserfstools), build a 2.4 kernel for it, boot that, then
mkreiserfs the regular partition(s) and clone the system onto that (using
cpio, tar or cp), then change its fstab and reconfigure your bootloader.

Another way is to get a set of potato bootfloppies modified to support an
install onto reiserfs partitions; see
