        All files need not be stored in *one* image, becuase FAT32 has this 
problem of fragmentation when a huge file is moved around. I guess we
could provide various reiser-fs partitions just like we have a 
"/home" "/var" and "/tmp".... That also simplifies data backup and 
recovery. (I guess any server will need backups...and only for data).

        Just a wild idea that popped in my head . Might be redundant...
