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).
