My mistake!! Sorry. What I said above is backwards. The filesystems 
without lost+found are filesystems that were converted from ext2 to ext3
by upgrading from RHL 7.1 to roswell. We had some problems with the system
so we did a fresh install of 7.2. The filesystems without the lost+found
dirs are filesystems like /home that we did NOT reformat. They have a .journal
file in them. So I am not sure if roswell got it wrong or what. I can 
remake the lost+found  no problem. I just was not sure if they were suddenly 
not needed anymore. The filesystems that were reformatted during the install
HAVE the lost+found. I guess there could have been something with the way
the roswell installer was doing the conversions but the 7.2 one seems
to make the lost+found dirs.

Sorry for the confusion.
