Runs like a champ in Mandrake 7.2. Very fast for systems with lot's of
small files... I have one directory structire with many directories
contaning 7000+ files, and reiserfs is clearly a winner in performance.

Also, never turn off the power on an ext2 system without syncing.
I lost most of a CVS repository that had been running for months,
because a cleaner tripped over the cord into the machine... I learned
a lesson that day.
