mtab says that the disk is mounted ext3.

This 2.4.22-xfs is on a knoppix distribution. If it has xfs, then ext3 should 
be there as well but how would I find out for sure. BTW, as I said, I had a 
hard reboot incident and the initial fsck due to this was 100% clean.

The "warning" occurs on the initial read-only mount to test so maybe the 
problem is there. If in any event, I do need the ext3 reference in initrd (/
etc/mkinitrd/mkinitrd.conf contains nothing but some explanatory 
comments),how do I get it there.
