a little it more info: the raid patch is from Matt's
website (linux-2.4.13-aacraid-20011105.patch.gz).

fs are:

# df -kTl
Filesystem    Type   1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3 reiserfs     5124568   2449156   2675412  48% /
/dev/sda2     ext2      497861      5850    466307   2% /tmp
/dev/sda7     ext2       85530      8114     73000  11% /boot
/dev/sda6     ext2     1011928    120472    840052  13% /var
/dev/shm     tmpfs      514684        60    514624   1% /var/run
/dev/sdb1      xfs   143330396    234584 143095812   1% /export
shmfs          shm      514684         0    514684   0% /dev/shm

Attached you find the boot.msg file. My first assumption that the system
hangs doing reiserfsck on "/" was wrong. As the log shows it
hangs the first time fsck'ing /dev/sda2, second time for /dev/sda7 .
It doesn't happen with /dev/sda6 (=/var) though. The 6th row in
/etc/fstab are all the same for /dev/sda[2,6,7] .

The basic installation is a SuSE 7.2. I don't think it matters, but it 
comes with
e2fsprogs 1.19-WIP.

So, is there any suggestion how can I boot up the system without sending 
two times
ALT_SYSRQ-S ? If you need more info, let me know.
