[RedHat] ext3 data=writeback question

How in the hell do you get RedHat to mount ext3 partitions using the data=writeback mode via /etc/fstab?

Here is the line in my fstab that I am fooling with:

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults,noatime,data=writeback 1 1

This causes all sorts of errors on boot eventually leading me to a tomsrootboot rescue procedure.
