Looks like you've hit the pot-luck of VIA problems, and elevator bugs
(2.4.1). When the last crash hit, did you recycle with the power button or
the reset button?

Step one, if you can, get a backup of the raw device. This will make
everything easier if there are problems in step 3.

Step two, grab the latest reiserfsprogs from

Step three, reiserfsck --rebuild-sb ; reiserfsck --rebuild-tree

Drop me a line if there are any questions.
