I *think* this occurs when running a 2.2.x kernel with slink, because
the /etc/init.d/network script tries to add a route to the loopback
interface (lo). This is not neccessary any more with a 2.2.x kernel.
Look for a line starting with "route add ..." in /etc/init.d/network,
comment it out and see if that helps.

There is no need to 'defrag' ext2 filesystems, you don't have to worry
