Could you describe the errors you are seeing? If you are experiencing
the same ext2fs problem I am, you will see the following:
"ext2fs: Warning: bad type XX in directory entry: inode: YY offset: ZZ"

You might find that some libraries mysteriously "disappear", which
can cause executables to no longer function.
Can you tell me what kind of system you are on? (i.e., motherboard
type and chipset, do you have UDMA turned on, etc.)
