can redhat kernel source be patched?



I desperately need the ability to quickly recover from a power loss so I
am finally going to break down and spend some time with ext3.  I dl'ed
the ext3-0.0.6b.tar.gz and unzipped it in /usr/src.

Then I installed kernel-source-2.2.19-6.2.1.i386.rpm from redhat

I then treid to apply the patches:

cat ../ext3-0.0.6b/linux-2.2.19pre14.kdb.diff | patch -sp1
cat ../ext3-0.0.6b/linux-2.2.19pre14.ext3.diff | patch -sp1

But got prompted for which file to patch and not knowing what to do I
returned through them and got nastygrams about hunks being ingnored.
This I can see since I did not tell it what to do.  Can I apply these
patched to the redhat source and if so what do I need to do?

I just subscribed to this list and have not recieved a message yet so I
hope you guys are out there.

This output is a little different since I tried again from clean source
and did just the ext3 diff
Here is some of the output:

TIA
