Thumbs up SOLUTION

to check
$ emacs /etc/fstab
your OS should have them listed there per partition
(emacs, nano, vi, whatever editor you use)

to convert
# tune2fs -j /dev/hda1
(where hda is an ATA device and 1 is the first partition. sda1 for SCSI or SATA)

make sure your kernel supports it as a module, or built in (if it's a boot device)

Thanx 2:
