Yeah, this is likely because it's still flagged as development in the current 2.6.27 kernel. However, it has been released as stable in the 2.6.28 repository since October and we are now at 2.6.28-RC9 so I expect 2.6.28 will be going live in the coming weeks. I think I recall reading that one of the Fedora 10 betas had ext4 support.

I plan on building my new install from scratch so I may still give it a go.

Anyway, ext3 works.

So what's the problem to install unstable distribution with /boot ext3 and / ext4

About ReiserFS, well he (Hans Reiser) is in prison because of killing his wife, not because this FS is bad. And I have been with RaiserFS for an year, and can tell you that is blazing fast.
The only problem I had was on a server of mine, in which I accidentally deleted a directory because of a faulty script, and I wanted to recover the data. What I did was release the partition from the mirror RAID and make a "filesystem reconstruction" or something like that that reindexes all the files in the system. After that I copied the directory to another HDD, which is not in the RAID, and attached the partition to the md, waited to mirror. And after that copied the directory from the other drive back to the place it should be.

And if somebody is confused: ReiserFS =\\= Reiser4 =\\= (ext2 ~ ext3) =\\= ext4

Nothing at all, just pointing out to others who are thinking of experimenting with ext4 like I am that no boot loader at this time can boot an ext4 filesystem. Don't want someone coming back to me saying he can't boot because he formatted his lone / as ext4. Grub is working on it but, from what I've read, it's not quite ready for prime time.
