I was able to create a reiserfs filesystem on it by leaving it

about it and apparently it's not as good if the system crashes? The
journaling isn't there or isn't as good?

The ext3 vs reiserfs tradeoffs are relatively subtle. I use each on some of my systems.

It seems to me the much bigger issue is that you still have a huge
performance problem using the hpt374 driver. Try the following command
to see what kind of performance you are getting from your array:

time dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=100 > [some location on array]

That will write 100 MB to the drive and tell you how long it took, and
from there you can easily figure out the MB/s.
