Hi:

I have my fstab set up to mount / ext2. But I get this:

crcarle@mango2:~> cat /proc/mounts
rootfs / rootfs rw 0 0
/dev/root / ext3 rw 0 0
[etc.]

Despite:

crcarle@mango2:~> mount
/dev/sda2 on / type ext2 (rw,acl,user_xattr)
[etc.]

And:

crcarle@mango2:~> cat /etc/fstab
/dev/sda2 / ext2 acl,user_xattr 0 1
/dev/sda1 swap swap pri=42 0 0
[etc.]

How do I make the system stop mounting / as ext3?

Also, what is the meaning of all this from dmesg:

Attached scsi disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0

Thanks for input.

Good day!
