Actually not necessary. The problem might be this: you might have
compiled your kernel with reiserfs built as a loadable module, and your
root partition must have been reiserfs. If reiserfs support is not
built into the kernel, the kernel can't read your root partition, and it
can't obviously load the "reiserfs" module.
The / partition in my m/c is reiserfs, and my /home partition is xfs.

In my Debian SID box, recently I build a custom 2.6 kernel with--
ReiserFS, XFS and JFS support (all built into kernel). My root partition
is ReiserFS. When I booted using the custom kernel, I got an error
message that root can't be mounted. But when I removed XFS and JFS
support from the same kernel, recompiled and booted, things were fine.
Is that not possible to have coexisting ReiserFS, XFS and JFS support?
Or we have to pass anyother information to the kernel command line to
say the root filesystem in this case?
