Hey Rick,
I think I had a similar problem with a thinkpad and it going nuts after
trying to mount a (any) drive.
However I'm going to need some clarification on what exactly you're trying
to do when you receive the said errors (warnings)
Are you booting the system with a livecd (knoppix, gentoo) ?
If not, does it do the same thing with a livecd (looking for some kind of
Can you tell what the warnings are (what they say, some key words if it's
mostly jumbled non-sense)
Did it 'ever' boot fine (without giving warnings/errors)
If it did, do you know what you did (changed) before it started messing up

If you can't mount it, can you mount any other ReiserFS partitions, or any
other filesystems at least.
If it's specific to the ReiserFS partitions then obviously we have a problem
with the driver.
If it can't mount any filesystem we might have a problem with the disk.
(If you can) Check across disks and across filesystem-types.

P.S. When I had my problem I was getting CRC Errors or Cylindrical
Redundancy Check Errors, ended up being the CPU that fried :O

Good luck :D
