Hi, I'm running wine on reiserfs. It is working fine for certain applications like word, excel, anzio (SCO terminal emulator), but I didn't get any 3d games running with it. That may not have anything to do with resierfs though?

hmm, after having done alot of reading i came to the following conclusion:
wine runs fine on reiserfs, but in order to get vice city working i had to enable iso9660 long filenames, else setup.boot got renamed to and then i got the no diskspace error. i thought i got the no diskspace error because i was using reiserfs
