ReiserFS on 2.4.6

I've got an old machine that I want to set up as a webserver with a mysql database backend.

I was going to use RedHat 6.2 with Kernel 2.4.6 and convert the partitions to ReiserFS. Has anyone had any problems with this kind of setup or is the best setup really Kernel 2.2.17 with ReiserFS.

I use 2.4.6 and ReiserFS on the machine that runs and is has been rock solid.

I have to say, ReiserFS is nice. If it doesn't corrupt, that is. Up until a few weeks ago, I had my system running ReiserFS on 2.2.19. Everything was fine and dandy, until a number of important directories became "unstatable".

I tried Reiser's reiserfsck, only to be left with a pile of binary garbage that once used to be my filesystem.

Luckily, I had a rather current backup I could restore with. I did so, but onto a fresh ext2 filesystem.

I really am all for this journalling FS stuff, but not at the expense of my data.

reiserfs is good... but it's still fairly early in development compared to other fs's - they still find bugs of the more basic kind every so often -

it should be impressive when it's a bit more robust.
