You guys are great, figuring thios out would have
taken many beers :-) This really helped, now I could

... my install claims to load reiserfs kernel module
for the default kernel. I plaid around with Suse 9.e

Think it muts be hidden either in the initrd or some

You ar perfectly right: it does not. So John's
solution is the way to overcome thisone (add panic=xx
after showopts in grub menu.lst file).
