If you want to find the ext2 support option, when you run make
menuconfig, go to the menu labeled "File Systems", and the first
option you'll see is "Second extended fs support". This is the option
you should enable if you want to be able to boot from or mount EXT2
file systems. I guess you missed it brown wrap because of the somewhat
weird naming of the option.

Then, recompile your kernel.
