Description of problem:
After booting first ISO of FC3test2 i typed linux reiserfs, so the
reiserfs has been shown as one of available filesystem during
partitioning. I choose to format two prartitions / and /home both in
reiserfs. The installer show that it is starting formattiong drives
and then it stops. The HDD led did not blink or light at all. After an
hour I rebooted. I tries three times with different types of
installations (custom, workstation) and diffrerent layouts of disk
partitions. Nothing helped. Then I choose ext3 ant install went good.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC3test2 ISOs

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC3t2 with linux reiserfs option
2.CHoose formattion at least one partition in resierfs

Actual Results:  Installer stops just before formatting

Expected Results:  Partition formatted in reiserfs

This should be fixed in the final release and can be worked around in
the test release by adding selinux=0 to your boot parameters.
