But how to generate the ext3 partition? As usual I do not find my patched install.sh
script but the following needs to be adapted:

mount -t ext2  (yep, ext2 and 3 are apart from the journal compatible, nevertheless
ext2 need not be supported even if ext3 is)

The uboot specific settings should not be changed to ext3 (config file,
ext2load, ...).

Yep, really minor stuff. But one has to test it, perform a new install, ...
How about ext4???
