I was running ReiserFS 3.6 with kernel 2.6.7 on a server and had serious
problems (kernel panics like 'unable to satisfy paging request' somewhere
in reiserfs land, according to the stack trace). Updating the kernel to
2.6.9 seemed to solve the problem (no panic since then).

So I cannot recommend this particular combination.

Ok, this was my first posting here. Hope I didn't do anything wrong. ;-)
