I think reiserfsck simply refuses to run on a partition that is mounted
read-write.  You should run it with the partition not mounted at all, if
possible, or mounted read-only otherwise.

If this is your root partition, you want things to happen in this order:
- mount it read-only
- fsck
- remount it read-write
When I ran the reiserfsck from rescue and knoppix it was unmounted
Check your startup script(s) and boot options.

boot.device-mapper looks OK
/boot/menu.lst wasn't changed  the new kernel is linked to vmlinuz
Well I just copied everything from the old root to a new partition, modified fstab and menu.lst for grub and I'm getting the same errors.
