This can happen for several reasons:-

1) Make sure you specify ext3 in /etc/fstab, e.g.
...
/dev/hda6          /boot       ext3    defaults        1 2

2) 'ext3' may not be compiled into your kernel (or the module may be
missing). What kernel are you using and did you compile it yourself?

3) You may be hard coding ext2 in some mount command. Make sure that the
filesystem is unspecified or set it to ext3, e.g.
$ mount -t ext3 /dev/hda6 /mnt/tmp
