I'm using a stock Debian 2.4.18-k7 kernel image. After running tune2fs
to add a journal, it boots up correctly with my root file system
mounted as ext3 (confirmed in /proc/mounts).
I did not touch anything in the stock kernel, I'm using the same
initrd image that the package installed. There is however a .journal
file in the root filesystem, which, as it happens, is the only mounted
file system on the laptop in question.
