Wait, are you trying to boot a kernel that doesn't have ext3 compiled
in on a system whose /etc/fstab specifies the / partition as being
ext3?  You can't get away with having your root partition being a
filesystem for which you must load a module to support.  Unless you
use initrd, but that's messy and not very failproof.
