After inspecting a little more, I found this message while booting in init

"Remounting root filesystem in read-write mode: mount: / not mounted
already, bad option."

So, I rebooted in RH's 'rescue mode', and modified my /etc/fstab, which
looked like this:

LABEL=/   /    ext3 data=writeback       1 1

I supposed that 'data=writeback' was causing this error, I simply change
that parameter for "defaults" and then the fs was correctly mounted in rw

Where or how should I set 'data=writeback' ? I supposed that fstab was the
right place.

Thanks again.
