The stock Fedora kernel doesn't have ext3 support builtin, but as a
module (the same for several others filesystems and drivers).

For the systems that need support for fs or drivers compiled as modules on
bootup, the mkinitrd tries to find the necessary modules and creates an
initrd that loads those modules.

It could be that you removed the initrd configuration in grub.conf or that
the initrd wasn't created properly.
