Description of problem:
Reiserfs support is not in ES 3.0 at all.  If this is on purpose, 
please reconsider.  Our company relies heavily on reiserfs for all of 
our file systems besides / and /boot.  If you view the config file 
for the kernel, support is in for a module, but the module is not 
present.  Also, the reiserfs-utils package is not on the media 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install ES 3.0
3.insmod reiserfs

Actual Results:  2 - not present, 3 - no module by that name found

Expected Results:  2 - should make a filesystem, 3 - should load the 
kernel module for reiserfs

Comment 2 Silver Kuusk 2004-01-19 13:34:33 UTC
I'm using on machines with RH ES 3 a reiserfs-utils rpm for Fedora.

Comment 3 Karsten Hopp 2004-01-27 14:40:01 UTC
reiserfs is not supported by Red Hat. The preferred journaling
filesystem is ext3
