Description of problem:
Currently ReiserFS is much more scalable and faster than ext3
especially in small files. It is also used by many reputed distros as
the default file system. It would be nice to be able to make ReiserFS
partitions when installing fedora.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start installing fedora

If you boot the installer with the "reiserfs" parameter, you will have the
capability to make ReiserFS filesystems.  This is completely unsupported,
however, and any bugs filed against it will most likely be marked as WONTFIX.
