The README says a LOT more than that:

        dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/sparefs/journal.dat bs=1k count=10000

assuming you want a 10MB journal on a 1k ext2 filesystem mounted on
/mnt/sparefs.  You need to find the journal inode's inode number, too:

        ls -i /mnt/sparefs/journal.dat

So, do I need to do all this, or no?
Your FAQ is really good, up untill this part, this is as far as I've gone.  *8^)
