That sounds interesting.
I partitioned my 8gb sd-card to use ext3 for the rootfs and added an
extra bootmenu entry for ext3.

But why is ext3 not recommended for sd-card when compared to ext2?

I played with debian on my sd card for over a week without any problems
so far concerning the sd-card. I hope i must not backup my rootfs and
reformat it to ext2. :)
