Yes. ext3 is simply ext2 with a journalfile. So you can mount that. But
since linux is not the only one who is writing to the disk I don't think
it is very usefull to use the journal anyway. Depends if a new log is
started after every mount.
I once had my OpenBSD box crash hard, I started ogle with no dvd in the
drive, while an ext2 partition was mounted and the things you will see
when fsck-ing the partition won't make you happy.
I still wonder why the linux-people do not try to get support for ffs
and softupdates. I mean journaling is fine but developping on six
different variations at the same time while there is also softupdates
seems a bit weird.
