Ext3 partion corrupts with RH8/CentOS 4 dual boot


I have a dual boot system where CentOS4 is the main OS and RH8 is on the other drive. FYI CentOS4 is based on RHEL4.

I can do a fsck check on the ext3 root partition of the RH8 system and it checks out clean. When I start the RH8 system things start to go slightly pair-shaped. The first sign of trouble is when the ext3 root partition is mounted...

Code:
May 26 17:14:42 newhost1 kernel: EXT3 FS 2.4-0.9.19, 19 August 2002 on ide0(3,6), internal journal
May 26 17:14:42 newhost1 kernel: Adding Swap: 1052216k swap-space (priority -1)
May 26 17:14:42 newhost1 kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device
May 26 17:14:42 newhost1 kernel: 03:06: rw=0, want=750565564, limit=116005333
May 26 17:14:42 newhost1 kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device
May 26 17:14:42 newhost1 kernel: 03:06: rw=0, want=750565564, limit=116005333
May 26 17:14:42 newhost1 kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device
May 26 17:14:42 newhost1 kernel: 03:06: rw=0, want=750565564, limit=116005333
These errors continue. Then when it finally boots after a warning that the partition is unclean some symlinks/files are broken or missing, as far as I can tell.

If I then boot back into CentOS4 then a check of the RH8 root parition is forced and it flunks so badly that I have to run it in interactive mode to fix it.

I seem to recall selinux having some problem with non-selinux partitions. Turn off selinux and see what happens. Should be in the docs.
