You must set the filesystems as ext3 in /etc/fstab. Not only that,
you need to make sure ext3 is compiled into the kernel (not a module)
or loaded in initrd, and tell the kernel that the root filesystem is
of type ext3 instead of ext2. Otherwise the kernel will mount it
as ext2.

Add in /etc/lilo.conf append="rootfstype=ext3" at the appropriate
kernel image, then run lilo and reboot.
