I am curious what version of lilo in fact supports ReiserFS tails. I am running Mandrake 8.0, and using the lilo supplied therewith, and have been booting a / partition as ReiserFS (with tails I believe, how do I check?).
At least version 21.6+ support reiserfs tails (maybe earlier, I don't know).
You should be able to verify with "strings /sbin/lilo | grep -i reiserfs".
What it does is unpack the tail on any kernel/initrd files so that LILO
can map the blocks directly. In a way, it is strange that this is needed,
since I thought tails only applied to files < 64kB or similar...
