ext3 root partition with kernel-image packages


I'm at a loss trying to mount an ext3 root partition using the standard
kernel-image packages. Usually I compile my kernels myself with ext3
build in, but now I have a situation where we have to use the deb

I was expecting that all I need to do is call mkinitrd once to get the
correct initrd image, reboot and that's it. But it simply does not work.
All docs I found so far suggest it should, though. But on our machine the
root filesystem is constantly mounted as ext2 (as listed in
/proc/mounts) but no error message is issued. The ext3 module is loaded
but listed as unused. 

To make matters even more strange on one machine a hard reset did not
cause a filesystem check despite the partition being mounted as ext2
while on another one the filesystem check did come up.

Any idea what we could try is very much appreciated.

Thanks a lot in advance.


P.S.: All machines are up-to-date woody installations.
