No, that exactly is my problem.

debian:~# lsmod

/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2 / ext2 rw 0 0

But /dev/hda2 is ext3 as proven by mounting it on another system.

That of course is what we did. And we also changed the /etc/fstab entry
to no avail. As you can see above the initrd did insmod ext3 correctly
but it not used and the partition is mounted as ext2.
