reiserfs-list namesys com ;-)

Ok, first grab the latest reiserfsck 3.x.1a from
ftp.namesys.com/pub/reiserfsprogs.  What you probably need to do is boot off
the suse CD, and then you'll be able to run reiserfsck --rebuild-tree on your
unmounted root drive.

I'd put the new fsck on a floppy, and run it from there.

If you want to send the errors from reiserfsck --check, I can confirm things
a little better.
