How do I Set up Debian on a ReiserFS Root Partition?
I recently did an installation from my Debian 3.0 r0 i386 CD. I was planning on having my root fs on a ReiserFS partition. I couldn't find ReiserFS in the cfdisk at the beginning of the installation so I thought I'd be able to change from ext2 to ReiserFS easily later on. From this forum, though, I learned I was wrong about that. Due to my partition scheme reinstallation of my system shouldn't take more than a 2-3 hours at most and I'm willing to make that sacrifice just to get ReiserFS on my root partition... now if only I had any idea how to do that.
So, how exactly do I install Debian to a ReiserFS partition? I'm thinking this should be possible since statistics show ReiserFS to be far superior to ext3, as far as I know. Am I missing something really simple here, or what? I just checked again, and there was no option for a ReiserFS file system in the hard disk partitioning part of the installation. Could someone please clarify this stuff to me?
