Thanks for pointing this out.  This explains the behaviour you're
seeing.  Debian installer has a low memory mode ("lowmem").  In this
mode, additional modules are not loaded automatically; this includes
the ext3 module.

I'll change the instructions to tell users to choose the ext3

Martin, wondering when 64 MB of RAM became low memory...
