	Is it worth bothering with Reiserfs on the root partition?

	I would have thought it would only be useful on /home, /var and
maybe even /tmp?

	Esp if you mount the other filesystems read only (like /etc, /usr)
on a production system (which would be a good idea anyway) I cant see any
benefit in having them on reiserfs.....

	I believe it is fixed in the latet "pre" patch, not the currently
	2.4.5. As I posted to the list about two months ago, I have reiser
on root 
	under Debian. It was a bit tricky to install; I had to duplicate an
	installed system from one disk to the new reiserfs partition.
However, the 
	speed and reliability are worth it! 

	I am hoping that the Debian boot floopies will have reiser a an
option when 
	they are next updated with 2.4.x kernel. I'll be asking about that 
	on Monday in Bordeaux... ;)
