Reiser 3, right? Not Reiser4?  Reiser4 is still not completely usable
for LFS purposes.  But I've built several systems using reiser 3 and no
troubles at all.  Esp. since you're using ext2 for /boot - that's a
smart move.  You should be able to just follow the book without any
hitches. :)

Have fun.
