I am trying to resize a file based guest DomU while it is shut down. It seems 
that all the information that I can find relates to resizing ext3 file systems 
and there in no information (that works) on Reiserfs.

The first thing that I try to do is to verify that Reiserfs tools work, so I 
execute this (hda is the domU file system file):

reiserfsck --check hda

and I get this:
Will read-only check consistency of the filesystem on image
Will put log info to 'stdout'

Do you want to run this program?[N/Yes] (note need to type Yes if you do):Yes

reiserfs_open: the reiserfs superblock cannot be found on image.
Failed to open the filesystem.

If the partition table has not been changed, and the partition is
valid  and  it really  contains  a reiserfs  partition,  then the
superblock  is corrupted and you need to run this utility with

Any suggestions where to go from here, I am completely stuck. This is on Suse 

reiserfsck -V
reiserfsck 3.6.19 (2003 www.namesys.com)

the same version is shown on Dom0 and DomU.
