Not that this helps you much, but you may find it entertaining...

Due to the way that the ext2/3 (and other file systems) work, file
fragmentation is not a major issue that you need to worry about. The
best I can recommend is that you try and keep your disk space
utilisation below around 70% or 80%. I believe once you start going over
that the system slows down drastically.

I'm not sure about converting to ReiserFS, but you may be able to
convert to EXT3, with out too much pain.

Just a couple 

http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux/ext2toext3.htm
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-7.3-Manual/ref-guide/s1-filesystem-ext3-convert.html

just google for ext2 convert ext3 (not hard come on people!), and you
get quite a few results (including converting to Rieser...).

Hope this helps.
