How do convert my root file system from ext2 to ext3 without rebooting?
Tentative notes for converting / from ext2 to ext3 while booted on /:
Unmount everything (including /proc ...)
tune2fs -Ohas_journal /dev/cciss/c0d0p3
(assuming c0d0p3 is your root partition)
mount -t ext3 -o remount,rw / /
Change the root entry in /etc/fstab
