| I have installed with ext3 and LILO.  What was the error message?

the ext3 module is now priority standard, but for some reason
mkfs.ext3 wants /etc/mtab to exist, so it has been made into a symlink
to /proc/mounts.  This _should_ work, and should have been for a few
days.  mbc, it's good if you report exactly what version you tried
when reporting bugs. :)
