The 2.4.1 kernel contains the reserfs kernel modules, but not the tools.
Let's see, fetch reiserfs tools, compile and install them...
Just because I can (using some spare partitions):
% df -Th /mnt*
Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
xfs 238M 144k 238M 1% /mnt
reiserfs 102M 33M 69M 32% /mnt2
% uname -a
Linux tokimi 2.4.1-xfs #1 SMP Wed Jan 31 20:19:11 PST 2001 i686 unknown
(this is my dual-Celeron box).
