Description of problem:
When installing Fedora trying to use reiserfs, I couln't get it working. After partitioning the system crashed, giving me a bug report I forgot to copy. When rebooting, the partitions were ok, but when trying to install the installer stopped installing the package "filesystems-2.4.3..." or something like that, claiming a lack of space or a faulty install cd (which were both not the case).
Installing worked when I repartitioned the root partition as ext3, leving only /home as reiserfs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Booting install cd using "linux reiserfs"
2.Going trough the install program, making sure the root partition is reiserfs
3.Waiting till the program installs "filesystems-2.4.3...." or something named similar, and see the installer stop.
Actual Results: The installer stopped, claiming there was no space or the cd's were bad
Expected Results: It should have continued installing

Note that reiserfs is unsupported.
