11 Looks like ext2 was not *built into* the kernel. If you used a gentoo
12 kernel-sources, and you weren't careful when doing make config, it is
13 very likely that you left the default, which is ext2 support as a
14 module. If you used the gentoo kernel package (binary), then that is
15 definitely your problem.
