What was wrong with this sequence?



I thought I understood things, but I guess not.  I recently configured a new
system for a colleague as follows:

    1. Redhat 7.1 install Dell Inspiron 8100 - three partitions on 30G - /,
       /boot, swap
    2. Boot up
    3. configure, make, make install of linux-2.4.12-ac3 (with approriate lilo
       changes) lilo (but no reboot until 8)
    4. rpm -U mount-2.11g-5.i386.rpm (from rawhide)
    5. configure, make install e2fsprogs-1.25
    6. tune2fs -j /dev/hda1 (boot) /dev/hda6 (/)
    7. substitute ext3 for ext2 for bot filesystems in /etc/fstab
    8. reboot
    9. 2.4.12-ac3 kernel boots, but fsck detects massive problems and we end
       up with a ton of stuff in /lost+found and enough stuff seems maybe
       broken that we think we should start from scratch

So, what's wrong here?  I thought this was a simple 9 step procedure that any
8 year old could manage while playing Diablo II at the same time.
