Interesting - I have been using Reiser on SuSE servers for the past 2.5
years without problems.  Along the way I did some testing of Reiser
performance on a 1.2 TB RAID array and didn't find any problems.  For
the production system my choice was XFS though - because of
performance for the type files that are stored on this machine.
