Consider using the -ac series of kernels.  It is a lesser-known fact that
many distribution kernels are largely -ac-based.  You get Alan's beautiful
detailed changelogs (if you're subscribed to lkml).  And, you'll get ext3
as part of the standard distro.

The general quality of the -ac releases are higher as well, I believe.

I've been running 2.4.13-ac5 here for a few days with no problems;
interactive performance, particularly VM performance, seems superior to
the 2.4.9-ac5 kernel that I was running previously.
