Hello all,

I get an error from e2fsck every time I boot into my (brand new) LFS

	Mounting root file system in read-only mode             [  OK  ]
	Checking file systems...
	fsck.ext3: Filesystem has unsupported feature(s) (/dev/hda7)
	e2fsck: Get a newer version of e2fsck!
	File system errors were encountered that couldn't be
	fixed automatically.  This system cannot continue to boot
	and will therefore be halted until those errors fixed manually
	by a System Administrator.
	When you press Enter, this system will be halted.
	Press Enter to continue...
	md: stopping all devices
	md: md0 switched to read-only mode
	Shutdown: hdb
	Shutdown: hda
	System halted

As far as I can tell, the version of e2fsck on the LFS partition and on
my FC3 partition (which was the host for the LFS build) are identical;
1.35.  I can mount, unmount, and run e2fsck on /dev/hda7 from FC3 and
the rescued CD I have without problems or errors detected.  I used nALFS
to do the build, and followed every step except the grub configuration
and installation, since I already have grub installed and working.  I've
looked through the Wiki and mailing list archives, but found no mention
of this anywhere.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?
