Wolverine is not 7.1beta, it is 7.0.91 beta, and there was/is no
release of Wolverine 7.0.91 for Alpha.

We do not have anything called RH7.1beta.  ReiserFS is something
very very very NEW, and it has bugs that are being discovered all
the time.  They're getting fixed, but I'm sure more will be
found.  Our kernels are very likely to have any known fixes
included that do not cause problems in themselves.  There is no
guarantee however.  When in doubt, try the latest rawhide kernel.
