Thanks Ben,
The kernel shows reiserfs as having some extended attribute support, but 
I wasn't sure if it was everything that SELinux needed.

<*> Reiserfs support
[*]   ReiserFS extended attributes
[*]     ReiserFS POSIX Access Control Lists
[*]     ReiserFS Security Labels

CONFIG_REISERFS_FS_SECURITY:
Security labels support alternative access control models
implemented by security modules like SELinux.  This option
enables an extended attribute handler for file security
labels in the ReiserFS filesystem.

I guess I'll stick have to research more or go ext3.

Cheers,
Chris
