The hint is mostly valid. However, one item in the FAQ became invalid 
with the release of reiser4progs-1.0.6.

Q: Can I boot from a Reiser4 partition?

A(old): Sure! Lilo will boot perfectly. For GRUB fans, there is a 
seperate patch for
GRUB which is required.

A(new): Sure! Lilo will boot perfectly. For GRUB fans, there is a 
separate patch, but (as of reiser4progs-1.0.6) the patched GRUB doesn't 
even compile. With older versions of reiser4progs, the patch breaks 
booting from non-reiser4 filesystems unless one compiles GRUB with 
CFLAGS=-O1.
