This is a domU, right?  That's normal - you don't want them to be able to set 
the hardware clock.  By default, they'll all use the time from Xen, which can 
be maintained by running ntp in dom0.

I seem to remember the key mappings thing is also normal for a domU and you 
can just turn the script off.

That's perculiar - you shouldn't have a problem here.  Other people are 
running ReiserFS OK.

Shouldn't be udev either - it'd be interesting to see if you can mount 
ReiserFS filesystems when everything's up and running.
