It's not only reiserfs, but all the journaled filesystems you find
on linux (SGI's XFS, IBM's JFS, EXT3, ReiserFS, ...). Of course things
can still go horribly wrong, that's why all those jfs systems have their
own tools (like reiserfsck :-). But there is more: you can not only
mkreiserfs or debugreiserfs, but also resize_reiserfs! Imagine
using that on top of the LVM (logical volume manager, version 1.0 just
released) where you can just add a new disks to your system, add them to a
logical volume, and increase the size of your existing reiserfs filesystem
over/into the new disks. Neat. Exactly what my IBM/AIX colleague sysadmin
has been doing for years...

This is a fast moving topic, so look at the date of the articles!
