i was booting from the first FC5 CD, gone to rescue mode, than passed
a tune2fs -j /dev/hda5 which resulted in " this filesystem has already a
journal" , than passed a data=journal to the relevant line in the fstab.

If i discovered this right, FC5 defaults to data=ordered which for me
not the most secure mode. I want to reboot with reboot -f ;)
