It is easy to convert an older partition formatted to the ext2 filesystem to ext3.

If you see the ext3 filesystem is virtually identical to ext2 with only difference that ext3 partitions include a journal. Which means if you create a journal for an ext2 filesystem, it automatically becomes an ext3 filesystem.

tune2fs -j command is used to convert partition from ext2 to ext3. For example, following command converts the /dev/hda1 partition from ext2 to ext3

# tune2fs -j /dev/hda1
