Hmm....

So...can I or can I not use snapshots with reiserfs? The snapshot was
taken of a currently mounted and functioning (reiserfs module
loaded...compiled into the kernel, actually) so if I did the snapshot
correctly there should be a filesystem there. I'm going to wipe it out
(nothing on it but some test files) and try again with ext2 and see what
happens. 

This should work, shouldn't it?
