And I played with the -r option. Stupid me, I should have ftp´ed the
source of the ext2 package and looked at the manpage instead of
just looking at the usage-message from mke2fs (my other system is
just too old to have a matching manpage).

Perhaps it only fails when it already finds a 2.2 compilant fileystem?
As I had the old filesystem on it, I got a warning that a new fs would
be written, IMHO a warning text for MILO users would be enough here.

I´ll be happy to test it for you, if you like.
