But, I bow to Oleg anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great utilities!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Before seeing this I installed Slack 8.0 on another small partition, downloaded
2.4.18, latest reiser tools from slack's site. I had to so a --rebuild-sb
thought first. Then the rebuild tree.....

Now I am back in Linux heaven! It just booted.

Oh man these errors freaked me the hell out.
I am still turned off by seeing the $25/per question for support on after clicking on "Support" with NO mention of the mailing list.
I found the mailing list LATER and some useful tips.

My brain kernel paniced!

Root FS backup commences...... :-)

Thank you Oleg!
