It is working here :(  I am wondering why you say this.

This is not simple "tune2fs -j ..." job like others had mentioned on this
thread.  It involves "insmod .." "mount -o remount ..." "mkinitrd ..." and
everything else.  If you are kind enough, please point me where I failed.  

Anyway, my information was extracted from discussion with
 Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>, 
 David Roundy <droundy@jdj5.mit.edu>, and
 Eduard Bloch <edi@gmx.de>.

I thought Herbert Xu was a very good source for information like this.

 Eduard Bloch <edi@gmx.de> said in the thread:

 You can, but you should not.

 It is commint from fsck which tryies to run fsck.ext3,ext2. You could
 make a symlink, but it is ugly, ugly, ugly.

Maybe I should have listened.
