Can we can an e2fsck package for FC2 that fixes this?

I always like to run two installs - one version old on my scsi disk - as a stable backup in case I bork my system, and current version on my main IDE drive.

But the backup "1 version old" install has to be able to mount / from the current install so that I can use symlinks to have the same /var/ spool/mail/mbox files.

I've wiped FC1 off of my scsi drive, put FC2 on it, and am now running FC3test on the IDE drive - and came into this problem.

So by the official FC3 release date, will we have an "official" update to fsck on FC2 pushed through yum, or will I need to update it myself?

I would prefer not to "roll my own" anything on the scsi (one version old) install, it's suppose to be stock stable that works.

I ran into this problem also with trying to mount newer created volumes from FC3T2 on my FC2 system for common file sharing between distributions.
This leads to people assuming their filesystem is corrupted because of being dropped into the maint shell when the volumes from FC3T2 are mounted on either FCT1 (now not too important a problem) or earlier versions of linux.

FC2 being a supported version still, this should get the newer versions, to rid this distribution from causing problems with dual booting FC3 and FC2.
I assume that FC1 will be a problem with FC2 and FC3 distributions after the version upgrade, but this would be a mission for legacy support.
