Hello, whenever I try to mount the ext2 filesystem using
the mount command, I get kmodload errors. However, I
am able to see the partition through debugfs.

OS: Mac OS X 10.1.5
Architecture: PowerPC G4
Media: Maxtor OneTouch 250GB Hard drive (USB)

[localhost:~] root# mount -t ext2 /dev/disk1s1 /tmp/o

    I tried this with the following versions:

    1.0.1
    1.1d4

    Ext2 is only supported on Mac OS X 10.2.0 or later. I just noticed
    this isn't mentioned in the Readme (but it is on VersionTracker --
    no excuse for not having it in the Readme though). I've rectified
    this oversight.

    In fact, 1.1 may be the last release to support 10.2.x.

    Amazon has 10.2 for $48, and 10.3 for $110. If possible, consider
    upgrading. The price (especially for 10.3) is well worth it.

    Sorry for any inconvenience.
