Yes. The first time I ran reiserfsck --rebuild-tree it told me to
rebuild the superblock and so I ran --rebuild-sb. The startup messages
only say the format is 3.5.x, so I selected the <=3.5.9 option

A complete - and so far unexplained - system freeze. The distro is SuSE
7.3, kernel 2.4.10. I have used it at home ever since it came out
without a single problem, so I'm quite surprised it died after a few
days of operations just serving a Samba share and acting as a Squid
proxy at the office (6-7 people using it, not heavy traffic).

The screen was blank and it needed a hard reboot. After the reboot I had
the same error the initial post reported.

I do not know if the raid0 partition failed in some way and it crashed
the system, or whether the system froze for some ther reason and the
hard reboot messed up the partition as well - although I tend to favor
the second case. I might have forgotten to disable APM, which on a
number of Dell machines has given me problems (the box is an old Dell
XPS with a 266 MHz PII). Possibly, APM kicked in and it froze the
machine - but I'm surprised this happened after over a week of continued

Well, I'll be very grateful for any insight you can offer
