loading the ext3 filesystem module into the kernel


Hi there --

I want to load the ext3 filesystem module into the kernel, but I don't know what the command syntax is in order to do so. I know I can use either insmod or modprobe. The only issue with the latter is I don't have the luxury of the -a option which allow me to load all modules.

Can someone lend a hand? Thanks.

'insmod' is the very limited / primitive / basic tool.
See 'man insmod'

'modprobe' is the advanced tool automatically taking
care of dependencies.
See 'man modprobe'
