You need a new enough e2fsprogs version. The LFS book currently comes with version 1.25 and you can use it's 'mke2fs' program to create a filesystem with an ext3 journal by adding the -j option, like so:

mke2fs -j /dev/hda1

By adding -J you can modify the journal options

when you create the /etc/fstab file put ext3 in it

and when you boot up check it with this

cat /proc/mounts

be sure to add support in the kernel
