Re: Getting ext3 up and running

This was, of course done. There is only one partition involved and since this 
was the root partition, this was set to "auto". It was tried before as ext3 
and ext3,ext2, but the reference said make it auto.

The problem is that ext3 is NOT in the kernel but is a module. This is why an 
initrd is needed.
