i tried to YUM it and i recieved a lot of conflicts with ext2online with 
the already installed e2fsprogs.  i naturally tried to uninstall 
e2fsprogs and recieved a flood of programs that would be uninstalled so 
i quit the attempt.  hehe ... i will look into your recommendations though!

Have a Nice Day!
