I doubt it...  Such an effort requires programming, debugging,
testing, etc.. that is unlikely to occur at this stage.
Wolverine is beta 2 of the final release.  ReiserFS as an install
time option is very unlikely to occur in any form for the final
release.  It is something that will be considered for future
releases of Red Hat Linux however.

I'm sure someone out there with spare time on their hands will
produce the necessary hacks to do what you want anyway.  Just ask
on reiserfs's mailing list, or on linux-kernel and likely someone
who has made bootdisks for guinness and zoot will point you in
the right direction.

Let me know how you make out.

Hope this helps,
