unfortunately Stephen haven't provided an ext3-ready kernel RPM yet, but
maybe some other guys have one ready to install for you.

You can also have a look at the little FAQ that I wrote, which you can
find at http://innominate.org/~juri/ext3-faq.html . There are the basic
steps to build your own kernel described (but I still haven't finished
the part on creating the journal :-(
In short:
get the (patched) e2fsprogs-RPMs from
ftp://innominate.org/pub/juri/RH-7.0/ (or
http://innominate.org/~juri/ftp/ ) and install them, then after you
installed the new kernel and rebooted, create a journal on each of the
filesystem you want to run with ext3: journal -j /dev/hdaX.
