Plus, ext2 has *very* good fsck, tested by years.

Last time I ran reiserfsck, it found some errors, but warned me *against*
trying to fix them. I have SuSE7.2 system on reiserfs, and fsck complains
slighlty. System seems to work well. How do I fix it up? Is reiserfsck
really so dangerous as it cllaims?
