Thanks :)  Now it is crystal clear.  I also added entries for
/etc/mkinitrd/modules.  So modules (jbd ext3 ext2) load automatically
upon boot.

I still have minor issues with "ext3" set-up, namely, "fsck" and "cramfs
magic".  Can anyone tell me what to do.

I was told that using "ext3,ext2" in /etc/fstab is better than just
having "ext3" for safe back drop when booting 2.2 kernel.  Made sense.
But reality was strange.  At least keeping it as "ext3" made cleaner
boot.  Below are the details of trouble with "ext3,ext2" in /etc/fstab:

1.  Boot screen had fsck messafge printing out:
fsck 1.25 (20-Sep-2001)
fsck.ext3,ext2  ... complain something like command does not exist.

This is not in dmesg but just on console screen.

2. dmesg contain "cramfs: wrong magic"

This happens right after "Partition check:" as

cramfs: wrong magic
kjournald starting.  Commit interval 5 seconds
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem) readonly.
change_root: old root has d_count=2
Freeing unused kernel memory: 216k freed
