I've asked about the SRPM situation but if you want to run your own
kernel, the easy way for now is to pull the ext3 patches themselves


The "0.0.3b" tarball is the one we're using in the current beta, and
it patches cleanly against 2.2.17.  For 2.2.18-current you'll need a
one-liner patch: the easiest way to get it to build is to add an

	#include <linux/ext2_fs.h>

to the top of linux/fs/ext3/super.c once you have patched ext3 into
the kernel.

And yes, ext3 on a laptop rules.  :-)
