You've been given the answer before, when you asked last week. Of
course, since you multiposted to so many groups, you probably missed
the answer you were given.

i think we can extend the block size upto page size(16 bit ) =64k

Blocksize is just one part of the change. The /other/ part will break
compatability with current ext2 and ext3 implementations. But, you
would have known that (along with /which/ parts these are) if you had
read the responses you got the last time you asked.

,,,at least i want to change upto 16k

And I want a million dollars, tax free. I think the chances of you
getting a 16Kb blocksize in ext2 are worse than my getting a free
million bucks. there any way to achieve this..........

Read the previous replies.

Short answer: no, it can't be done (by you, without breaking anything)

presently i'm using redhat version 9(kernel 2.4.20-8)

You have my condolences
