Kernel Recompile Filesystem modules

I have two kernels compiled, one for each sytem. I know enough how to install them, and after many runs thought xconfig I think I got both machins kernels trimmed down quite well, yet...

Upon boot-up I get errors messages stating that the ext3.o (or somethign like it) module, the jdb (or whatever that other filesystem was) modules failed to be run on the kernel, saying they were compiled for the kernel that was included with the distro.

The system runs fine though, but to get those unsighlty errors messages away from boot up I was wondering what would need to be done...

as I recall both filesystems were built INSIDE of my kernel, and sicne I use ext3 for the hardrive, I wastold compiling them as modules would require another step to make the system bootable...something about images or IMGs (whatever that crap is in boot)

IF THATS THAT CASE, can I still have these filesystems build IN the kernel but get rid of the errors?

I imainge I didnt word that as good as I could have, but I imagine someone out there knows what im talking about...

So for some reason the boot thinks ext3 is a module not builtin.

Check you module lists.

It might still be listed from a previous install, but because its built in its not among your modules.

I use modconf, but I think thats a debian thing.

If I choose to make them modules from xconfig., how do I make the image file for booting?
