No, that isn't it. This is on the initial mount of "/", so it doesn't
_have_ /etc/fstab yet. The odd thing is that grub has no problem identifying
it immediately as reiser, it's just Linux that goes through a really odd
ordering (I mean, it's fine to check ext2 first, but to check ext3 as well -
when you're going to mount root as read-only anyway - then all the dos/fat
related filesystems, before trying reiser? The correct way to fix the fs
search algorithm, if you have / mounted already is to modify /etc/filesystems,
but it has the same problem as modifying /etc/fstab (which, btw, is already
Recent discussion about CD mounting makes me guess a boot parm of hda2=reiserfs
