why doesn't it? what errors do you receive? as far as I know, both kernels you mentioned can handle quite a few filesystems...

it gives then genreic error "bad blockdevice, wrong fs".

however i can cleanly mount it under the slackware machine but the fedora keeps giving these messages even when autoprobing the superblock

cat /proc/filesystems
to see if your kernel supports reiserfs.
