Well unless you read somewhere that we are getting out of the box suppot for mp3 I doubt it'll be in there. I am looking forward to better ACPI support via the 2.6 kernel. I am also looking forward to bug fixes, namely the add/remove and up2date sources fixes, as I am much tired of answering questions about them Are we getting ReiserFS? That would be cool! You don't have to reply, I'll hop over to the website and check the packages list. Take care!l

EDIT: I mean defaut ReiserFS

Uh, I do not know where you have been, but Redhat has supported ReiserFS for a long time.
(since 7.3 maybe, definitely since 8.0)
When you are installing off the first CD-Rom:
At the first "boot" screen (the press F1 etc screen)
type:
linux reiserfs

When you install, create a custom partition layout.
choose reiserfs for the file system on whatever partition you desire.
