If you've been using ext2 and want to change over to ext3, try
following these steps:
1. Make sure your kernel supports ext3
("cat /proc/filesystems"), especially if it's the root
partition's file system you are about to change.
2. Run "tune2fs -j /dev/hdxx" to create a (preliminary) journal
in the ext2 filesystem on partition "/dev/hdxx".
3. Edit "/etc/fstab", pick the correct line, and change the
filesystem parameter from "ext2" to "ext3".
4. You can immediately try
"umount /dev/hdxx && mount /dev/hdxx". It will complain if
the filesystem is in use; in that case rebooting is probably
the easiest way to find out if it all worked. :-)
