apologies for multiple posting, I didn't actually address your primary 
concern, just skipped over it and went to what caused the problem. ext3 is an 
addition to ext2. ext3 is backwards compatible with ext2, you can overlook 
what fsck says, don't take it literally, it is just saying it can't find an 
ext* filesystem at all regardless of which version of ext* it tries.
