I came across this piece of great info for moving /HOME and some other directories to another disk ( I had originally installed everything under /).
Although written for Gentoo it is still valid for SUSE
and I never realized what a gem of a delight the CFDISK program was -- it's certainly on my SUSE 10.0 RC1 system.
Hope you find this useful
Don't forget also that to make (format) a Reiserfs file system use as root program mkreiserfs.
This gave me a strange error the ist time so I formatted the partition with the standard mke2fs (ext2) file system -- DID NOT MOUNT and then ran mkreiserfs on the same partition --then it formatted fine.
