Do you know for sure? Did you trust "mount" output or /proc/mounts

You can add ext3 to /etc/mkinitrd/modules, or change fstype to "ext3" in
/etc/fstab. Then run "dpkg-reconfigure kernel-image-2.4.17-586tsc". All
this will be easier if you use "auto" as fs type and WHEN Herbert Xu
finally applies MY PATCH submitted a while ago.

I think my Linux is more reliable than my harddrive. The question is what
will crash first.
