Grub booting ReiserFS
I am trying to boot Slackware 8.1 from the version of grub included with Redhat 7.3. It just says that the partition type (reiserFS) is not supported, I have gone to the grub site and checked the version, this should work. Is there any way to make it work, or shall I just re-install LILO?_____

i would go with LILO or grab off a new version of GRUB.Odds are very good there are several spelling mistakes in this post.

These are the instructions that come with Gentoo:
"If your boot partition (the one holding the kernel) is ReiserFS, be sure to mount it with the -o notail option so GRUB gets properly installed.
Make sure that notail ends up in your new /etc/fstab boot partition entry, too."
I think when you edit your grub boot loader under redhat, you actually have to mount the boot partition before you make changes (could be wrong)
I've got grub loading gentoo and suse 8.0 both using reiserfs for /boot and /
I'd post my /boot/grub/menu.lst but I am "rebuilding" gentoo as I type
Hope you get it fixed

No, the boot partition is EXT3. Redhat 7.3 doesn't seem to include any support for reiserFS, I just fancied grub because I had a nice idea to change the background image. I'll re-install LILO when I next reboot._____
