I think your root partition is being mounted as ext2,
and you're specifying ext3 in /etc/fstab, so `mount'
tries something like:

	mount / -o remount,rw -t ext3

and then it dies because the partition isn't ext3.  I think.

Please run `tune2fs -j' against the root filesystem's device
node to turn it into ext3, and statically link ext3 into the kernel.

If that doesn't work, please send the first 30 lines of
`dumpe2fs /dev/hdXX' (where hdXX is the root partition) and
also the relevant boot-time messages.
