Yes just create a new reiserfs partition from your UMSDOS linux and unpack
the sys.tbz2 package
to that new partition then you can follow the install-instructions on the
web-page.
You should add "conv" to /etc/fstab if you use reiserfs older that 3.6.25 on
your linux and want to convert it to
the newest format. (but I think you can't read it from your UMSDOS-linux
after that).
