Your best bet is probably to upgrade to the RedHat Rawhide kernel, 2.4.6-2.4,
which uses 2.4.6-ac5 and ext3-0.9.3.  You can grab it from a mirror like

You should upgrade mkinitrd, modutils, ksymoops, losetup, mount, and e2fsprogs.
You might want to also grab lm_sensors, etc., while you are there.
I've also upgraded gcc from RawHide on my boxes.

If these won't install because of glibc dependencies, either upgrade glibc
also [ note that you can use rpmfind to resolve the dependencies for you ... ]
or grab the source rpms from http://rpmfind.net/linux/rawhide/1.0/SRPMS/SRPMS
and rebuild.

You can apply a 0.9.3 -> 0.9.4 patch (generated from CVS) on top of the
kernel source, or insert it as an additional patch into the source rpm,
rebuild, and install.  The Redhat developers will no doubt put out another
kernel in the near future with the latest ext3 fixes.
