HELP: ext3 root partition with kernel-image packages without reboot

Hi Michael,

Your problem seems to be -i386 image issue. I am happy to hear you got
it working.  But I am disturbed and enlightened by your comment.

You are correct.  I only rebooted the system.  So my description only
works for rebooting system after ext3 modification.  

After playing with system, I now understand /etc/fstab entry only
affects /etc/mstab and output of mount command but not /proc/mounts :(

I am confused and need help from a competent developer who can indicate
"Best Practice" ext3 transition plans.  One for rebooting and another
without rebooting.  Is there some kind of pivot root or some
commandsequences to reach this nice trick.  If someone send me a patch
over this issue, I will be grad to change that section.  


PS: Going into init 1 and coming back to init 2 froze my nfs system :(
    I am at loss.????
