Hi!
I am a little bit confused tring to install Debian Woody through the Net .
For a special purpose I have to use Ext3 fs . I downloaded 2 .iso - vanilla-3.0.23-mini.iso & idepci-3.0.23-netinst.iso from http://people.debian.org/~dwhedon/boot-floppies/ .
(1) It uses cfdisk 2.11n . So it allways let me to create only Ext2 partition .
(2) I tried to partition disk before booting the netinstall image using disk druid and created an Ext3 partition . So after that cfdisk show it as Ext2 fs type .

 As I Know , Ext3 is a little bit modified Ext2 . So what type of fs will I have after making (2) ?

Ext3 and ext2 are the same partition type. Only after creating the filesystem in the partition there is a difference between the two. And even then you can easily convert a ext2 filesystem to a ext3. The only differende is the presence of the journal, and you can create that with:

tune2fs -j </dev/hd..>
