FWIW, Debian although it doesn't support reiserfs "out of the box" at
present, works flawlessly for a large number of people I know. I also
hear Mandrake 7.2 and 8.0 work pretty nice if you want a pointy-clicky
experience :)

Since so many people seem to run RedHat, perhaps it's worth someone
determining exactly what is busted with their init scripts or whatever
that makes reiserfs barf more often that with other distributions.
