Hi,

why can't you convert to ext3? Eg unmount the partition and run:
Code:
tune2fs -j /dev/sdXN
Then change mount type from ext2 to ext3 in your /etc/fstab and remount.

If you really want to protect against power failures you should invest in a UPS.

What do you mean by this? Is this supposed to exaplain why you can't use ext3? Or why you can't use a UPS? Something else?

Cheers,
