    nice .. ;D
    try to edit lilo.conf to mount your root partition read-write so the filesystem can be restored upon a failure .. i had this problem once with my comp.

    Thanks for the tip. Here is my lilo.conf

    boot=/dev/hda
    map=/boot/map
    install=/boot/boot.b
    compact
    prompt
    timeout=60
    image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.2.19-reiserfs
    label=linux
    root=/dev/hdb3
    append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"
    read-only
    other=/dev/hda1
    label=win

    label=linux
    root=/dev/hdb3
    append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"
    read-write <-- change this to write instead of only
    other=/dev/hda1
    label=win
    The only thing was that my startup scripts now had a problem, cause they thought that the fs was ext2 and was mounted read-write and this shouldnt be done ..
    I solved this with editing the scripts .. but this was in slack I dont know debian .. so any one here can tell me if this problem exist in debian ?

    Finally made the modifications (work has kept me busy) and no problems on boot-up. I should mention that the install disks I used were from a third party developer.

    Did you use a boot disk or do the painfull transistion to reiserfs yourself? Any work on ext3 for Debian?
