ext2-support is lacking in openSuSE 10.2 kernel

Today, I was playing around with some Disaster Recovery software (Mondo Rescue and mkCDrec) and had to recognize after some tries and errors, that the created boot cdroms just didn’t work because SuSE removed the ext2-support from openSuSE 10.2 kernel. That’s really annoying, because the initrd filesystem cannot be mounted without it (in default configurations) and I did not get the minix fs to work yet ..

After some time spent searching on google, I found precompiled openSuSE 10.2 rpms at software.opensuse.org for Mondo Rescue.
But same problem for me -> backup worked like a charm but I still can’t boot from cdrom (hangs after a while).

I’ll try another Linux distribution next days and test that there, because the disaster recovery software seems to be very interesting and useful.
