Ok, but I don't intend to format a second drive during the installation
process, because it is the backup of the data I want to use.
I was looking for the something like: 
	format /dev/hda6 and use reiserfs 

Btw. Reiser is not supported in bf2.4?!

Well, I am just looking for some journaled file system to be used on a
single processor machine. I would go for the file system which is the
easiest to install and wouldn't punish me with beeing extraordinary
