I do the same: ext2 boot, ext3 for the rest. dir_index and noatime are
both on. I do actually use tmpfs though.

I used to use reiser as my main partition, with ext2 on /boot, but I
switched at one point... I think actually for dual booting, because
there were windows extensions that could read ext but not reiser. /me
