Thats correct Karsten. I had just done copy and paste in my /etc/fstab and as a
result errors=remount-ro also remained and I missed out on that. After removing
that option now it works fine.

I also had a look at man mount and could not find any mention of reiserfs in it
:-) But it works fine.

Thanks for the help.

Warm Regards
