Mounting jfs in Debian Woody


Shalom fellows,
I am running a Debian Woody 3.0r2. The problem is that the 'mount' manpage does not seem to list any way to mount the 'jfs' file system. The kernel I have is 2.4.18bf24. I have SuSE on another partition, but the file system I have used there is the 'jfs' (in SuSE). In Debian Woody, the file system is the 'ext3'. Is there any to mount 'jfs' in Debian Woody? The mount command says that the jfs is unrecognised when I try to mount the jfs filesystem. Any ideas about how to do this would be greatly appreciated.
Regards,
Maidros

When you install Woody, the only file systems available are: Ext2, Ext3, and ReiserFS.

HOWTO install Sarge with the net-installer-rc2
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=261506

With the Sarge net-installer you can install any of these:

Ext2
Ext3
ReiserFS
JFS
XFS
FAT16
FAT32
swap area
Physical Volume for LVM
Physical Volume for RAID

You have a choice of installing:

Testing (sarge)
Unstable (sid)
Stable (woody)

kernels:

2.4.27-1-386
2.6.8-1-386

which you can change later by installing kernel-images, it's all explained in the posting.
