Install the latest version of e2fsprogs (1.33-WIP, 6-Mar-2003).  Then
with the filesystem unmounted:

tune2fs -O dir_index /dev/hdXXX		<--- to set the dir indexing feature
e2fsck -D /dev/hdXXX 			<--- to convert larger directories
						to htree 

Note that these patches are somewhat experimental (I'd call them beta
quality).  Please think twice before trying it on production systems,
at least until other people report success, and always, always, always
backup your data regularly.

There aren't any mount options which are required.  The defaults
should work well for most people.
