Yeah - thats just *so* last year :-)

Get the latest e2fsprogs - such as sct's 1.20-WIP 20010216, and do
	/sbin/tune2fs -j /dev/hdaN

where /dev/hdaN is the device for the fs you are trashing.

[Actually sct's e2fsprogs release might complain about that command 
line - think it needs a one line fix or for the journal size to be 
specified with -J - here's Andreas' quote on it:- ]
