Putting the options in as you specified makes haresources think that this is another script that needs to be executed. With that in mind I tried as a separate script `mount -t reiserfs -o remount rw,acl,user_xattr' but that didn't work either. Regarding user_xattr this installs into fstab as part of SLES 9, I suppose when using reiserfs. According to the documentation that I found: "This patch uses the REISERFS_UNSUPPORTED_OPT flag to denote -o(no)acl, and -o(no)user_xattr as unsupported, but allowable, when support isn't built into the kernel." This seems to say that this is a patch to allow acls and attributes to be used when not compiled into the kernel. Maybe someone at SuSE could shed some light on it. Regards, John
