/proc/filesystems lists ext3 

I think the error is something different.  I can mount my USB key that I
formatted ext2, but when I try /dev/hda1 instead of /dev/sda1, it says
Unknown error 6, which is "no such device or address".

When I do a ls -l /dev/ I get
brw-rw----	1 0	0	3,	1 Oct 13 13:08 /dev/hda1
brw-rw----	1 0	0	8,	1 Oct 13 13:08 /dev/sda1

The only differences are the h vs. s and the major number

Thanks for your help,
