IMHO the best fs for sd is vfat if you don't care about permission, so 
if you have to put your photos or docs on it, else ext2 is BETTER than 
ext3 in this case for a simple reason, it doesn't have the journal.
Not having the journal imlies a redouced number of write to sd and a 
reduced probability to get the data lost.
