Re: Question about Reiser4 (how to boot it?)

Thanks, that is certainly helpful, but that only mounts one directory
(partition) as Reiser4.
This I have already done.
I was more interested in how to have a whole partition dedicated to
Reiser4 and being able to boot into it.
By any chance did you do that?
