Humm, could this also explain why, when dual booting between fc3rc3
and the emc "BDI-rc43", where the installed version of e2fsck is
1.35 in both instances, fc3rc3 boots just fine, but BDI-rc43 drops me 
to a shell
and tells me to run e2fsck, which then reports it is too old and
cannot handle that filesystem, *BUT*, I can ctl+d out of that shell
and the boot to the morphix/debian 2.4.25-adeos kernel then
continues with no ill effects?

The only common partitions between the two boots are /swap and
/boot, everything else is isolated on its own partitions, but each
boots /etc/fstab does contain mounts of the others partitions. Grub
in the mbr of course.

Cheers, Gene
