For any new installation I would recommend ext3 over reiserfs.

We use reiser in work and it works very well on our SAP app servers.

I use ext3 at home.  No real problems. [1 problem ages ago when I
installed an old IDE drive in my S-ATA system, but gpart was able to
restore the partition table]

tune2fs has options so you can fsck/not fsck during reboots/scheduled
maintenance for example.  Don't know if touching /forcefsck to force an
fsck on next mount works any more or not though....
