    looks to me that your making all your filesystems on one partion. Just for reference, hda is a drive, hda* is a partiton on that drive. So if you mk<somefs> /dev/hda you use the entire drive. Try using fdisk to make your partitions. Pay special attn. to what number it is on so you can put your root system on one partition and your swap on another.

    never ever ever use the hardened option in make.conf!

    This will put ext3 on your hda1 (boot), swap as hda2 and reiserfs on your root partition (hda3)

    # mke2fs -j /dev/hda1
    # mkreiserfs /dev/hda3
    # mkswap /dev/hda2
    # swapon /dev/hda2
