Description of problem:
This is actually for RC2 (fairfax but there is no category for it)
When trying to upgrade a system which runs RC1 to RC2 using the CDROMs
anaconda complains that it cannot mount any partition. The partitions use
ext3. When trying this from the text console mounting works if it is done
as ext2. ext3 support seems to be missing completely.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RC1 and use ext3 for all partitions
2.Upgrade using RC2
Actual Results: Dialogs saying that certain partitions cannot be mounted.
Expected Results: Mount the partition even if they are ext3.

was updated from roswell to RC2 without any problems. root partition
was ext3, the rest - ext2. I selected convert to ext3 /boot during the update.
I upgraded RC1 to RC2. Filesystem layout:
/dev/hde6 on / type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
usbdevfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbdevfs (rw)
/dev/hde1 on /boot type ext3 (rw)

Jeremy please look into this.
This has worked also in lots of testing... if it didn't look like the module was
loaded on tty2, are you sure you were using the right boot disk?
Any more info here?
