Is this a Mandrake change, - or Linux wide (all distro's), change to the
definitions of ext3 ? (or just a change to the tools?)
Has only Mandrake changed the fsck tools - or have all distro's ?
I'm not against enhancements at all. Just like to avoid naming confusion that
occurs when two slightly different things have the same name. I guess I need
to understand exactly what has changed.

Thanks, - I knew that, but wanted to know if it too had been changed..... :o)

Where should I "google" for it. I use google, - but the expression is not one
I'm familiar with. eg. do I search 'net wide, - or just at Mandrakesoft?
Hints would help.
