Most likely your kernel doesn't have the ext3 filesystem compiled in.
If that's the case, and ext3 is a module instead, you need to have an
initrd to run at boot time which loads the ext3 module and mounts the
filesystem for you.

For Red Hat systems, "mkinitrd" will build such an initrd, but you
need to run it _after_ modifying /etc/fstab so that mkinitrd can see
that you want to use ext3 instead of ext2.

Cheers,
 Stephen
