Reiser, eh? Some versions of grub have a problem with reiser's tail
packing. Make sure you mount the filesystem notail. If you aren't
already doing this, 'touch' all the files on boot once it is mounted
notail; you could also do this just to be safe. If you touch all the
files, particularly the stage files, you should rerun 'grub-install' or go
through your standard process for installing grub on the MBR.

Grub ignores that anyway.

Well, make sure your grub.conf / menu.lst file matches the grub command
line you are giving. Also, make sure there aren't any stray characters
(e.g. Ctrl-A or Ctrl-@) in the grub.conf / menu.lst
