An ext3 filesystem can be mounted, read, and written by a system that
understands ext2, as long as the ext3 filesystem is clean and was normally
As far as stability, 0.9.6 has given me no problems, but I also haven't
exercised it that much. There have been a few troubles with 0.9.9. I
wouldn't touch 0.9.9 + Linux 2.4.10 with a 10-foot stick: major VM changes
+ new filesystem == bad ju ju.
