ext3 was introduced in Red Hat Linux 7 I think. I've got a production
7.2 system here that's got ext3 mount points. My 6.2 system doesn't.

That's not the same problem. Your issue is trying to boot off of a
software raid volume and that's not the same as a plain old ext3 volume
Remember that ext3 volumes will mount as ext2. You just won't have the
journal. And yes, I have tested this.
