The kernel might, but there's no ext3 tools (like mkfs.ext3) in the
distribution.  This is with the "install everything" option on x86
SuSE, from a boxed CD set, but I'm not sure now whether it was the
last 8.x version or 9.

BTW, I'm not blaming SuSE for the problems with Xen....it just
seems that the Xen developers are mostly using RH and variants,
and might have made some assumptions that don't work with SuSE.
I'm not blaming the developers either.  I'm not blaming anyone,
just "stating facts" (as Spock would say).
