    You installed typing
    make menuconfig
    make install
    make modules_install
    and you inserted reiserfs _NOT_ as a module indeed?
    If your root partition is a reiser file system you have to
    insert the driver.

    Other point may be, that you're using S-ATA harddisks and enabled
    the SCSI-option for S-ATA drives during kernel-compilation.

    Then your root-Filesystem is not on /dev/hda# (for example)
    but on /dev/sda# . (where # is the number of your root-partition on the harddisk)

    You may try it out stopping the boot process during the lilo boot prompt
    and type in your kernel-name and append the "root=/dev/sda#" option.

    For example:
    linux root=/dev/sda1

    (you might even try
    linux reiserfs root=/dev/sda1
    if you compiled reiserfs as a module...)

    Good luck,
