For some silly reason ext3 is a module in many (all?) Red Hat kernels.  

Try running mkinitrd, and that might just solve the problem for you by
including the ext3 module in the initial ramdisk.

By the way, this issue is addressed on the following ext3 FAQ.  So
this might be a good time to plug Juri Haberland's good work, which
can be found here:
