Hi There.  I am VERY new to linux.  I know very very little.  I want to get red hat 7.1 on my laptop but I want to user reiserfs.  Please explain in VERY clear detail how to accomplish this.  Presently my machine has a win2k partition but I have created space for a linux partition.  Please remember that I to get the points, you answer must be detailed to the last step.  I don't know how to compile or anything like that so if that is needed, you need to explain how to do that too.  Thanks.

Ok. 1) Grab the reiserfs utils from the kernel web site. The Kernel supports reiserFS, but RedHat didn't include the reiserfs tools.

2) compile the tools :> Usually just executing the following will do it (change the filenames for the exact archive name for the reiserfs tools):
tar xvfj reiserfstools-1.0.tar.bz2 (for bz2 archive)
tar xvfz reiserfstools-1.0.tar.gz (for gz archive)
cd reiserfstools-1.0
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
make install
cd ..
rm -rf reiserfstools-1.0.tar.bz2

3) create the file system
mkreiserfs /dev/hdb5

4) edit your /etc/fstab, add a line like this one (this from MY Rh 7.1 box w/ reiserfs. Note it may wrap. The following should be all one line, ending with the 1 2):
/dev/sda1               /home                   reiserfs    defaults        1 2


5) mount -t reiserfs /dev/hdb5
6) You're done
