Convert filesystem from reiserfs to ext2


My current linux server's filesystems is reiserfs. Unfortunately I need to enable quota for my users and as far as I know quota won't run on reiserfs.

So, can I convert the filesystem types to ext2 from reiserfs without having to re-install my o/s?

Or, is there any quota applications I can install that will run on reiserfs?

Thanks in advance.

I've run quotas on reiserfs. And yes, if your / partition is reiserfs, you will have to reinstall your o/s.
