My first post on the list, hello all :D
Did by any chance u compiled ext3 as module, instead of built-in
?

btw. I installed 2.4.21-rc7 with latest acpi patches on my
compaq presario 724ea and everything works far more than great.

Grab the acpi patch from :
http://members.optusnet.com.au/ckolivas/kernel/1070_ACPI_0305311044_2.4.21-ck1.patch.bz2
(it's Con Kolivas performance-enhancing patch-set, but u don't
 need any of the other patches...)

Vanilla 2.4.20 needs also ptrace & ext3 fixes patches before
applying acpi.
