Ext2 or Ext3?

Well, on the LFS book, it says to use Ext2 with it, but, I'm assuming, Ext3 is better, so, why not use that instead? Just curious.

" Ext3 is better, so, why not use that instead?"

You should be OK using ext3 providing that ext3 support is compiled into your kernel.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.

It's probably just outdated. ext3 is much newer then ext2.
Yup, ext3 is definitely superior compared to ext2.
