When partitioning the hard drive i was given a list of partition
types i could use, i chose reiserfs. However, after installing the
boot loader and rebooting, i was unable to boot since the arcs
boot loader only can read ext2 file systems (which i was unaware of).

I suggest adding a text that informs the user when partitioning
that the /boot partition (or the / partition if a separate /boot
is not chosen) must be of ext2 type.
