Hello,

It's true that the Fedora installer embedded with the LiveCD is 
minimalistic.
Currently it cannot install on reiserfs, but I guess it's only because 
the reiserfs-utils are not embedded in the LiveCD. I will have a look at 
this.
Alternatively you can install Fedora 17 with the official Fedora DVD, 
hoping it supports reiserfs, then install TDE from the internet repository.

If you really want to stick with openSuse 11.4 and TDE, I can build TDE 
3.5.13.1  ...
It should not be complicated since I already built for 12.2 .
