root fs not mounting ext3



I am using SuSE 7.3 compiled ext3 support into the kernel and installed it.
All my partitions load up as ext3 except / . I ran tune2fs several times, 
still doesn't take on the / drive. Most recent dumpe2fs -h show no features 
on that drive=, I keep going around in circles, removing .journal from / and 
running tune2fs but it never works for /


What am I doing wrong? ( thanks in advance)

I have tried several times such as:

-:/ # cat /etc/fstab | grep /dev/hda6
/dev/hda6       /                         auto            defaults   1   1

-:/ # tune2fs -O "^has_journal" /dev/hda6
tune2fs 1.24a (02-Sep-2001)
-:/ # chattr -i .journal
-:/ # rm .journal
-:/ # tune2fs -j /dev/hda6
tune2fs 1.24a (02-Sep-2001)
Creating journal inode: done
This filesystem will be automatically checked every 20 mounts or
180 days, whichever comes first.  Use tune2fs -c or -i to override.
-:/ # shutdown -r now


after reboot I get:


-:/ # cat /proc/mounts
/dev/root / ext2 rw 0 0
proc /proc proc rw 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts rw 0 0
/dev/hda9 /opt ext3 rw 0 0

-:/ # cat /etc/mtab

*****   If I set fstab to ext3, it still mounts as ext2 but with ro *****

dmesg shows:
