RedHat 8 and ReiserFS?

I am performing a fresh install of RedHat 8.  I have installed it in the past (using Disk Druid to partition the drive) and have noticed that Reiser is not an FS option for formatting.  Is there a way to install with ResierFS, or do I need to add that support after the install?

yeah, redhat 8.0 shipped with ext3 support built in, not reiser -> you will have to convert afterwards.

(it also doesnt have mp3 support built in as you may discover ;-) )

www.xmms.org has a plugin
