Mandrake 8 runs a 2.4 kernel, AFAIK. The MDK installer formatted the
filesystem as ReiserFS 3.6. However, the 2.2 kernels can only
recognize up to ReiserFS 3.5. 2.2 kernels can't mount ReiserFS
partitions ver. 3.5 (made by reiserfsprogs 3.6 that normally goes
with distros running 2.4)

In order to mount a ReiserFS 3.6 FS, you need to install a 2.4.x
