(1) busybox includes fsck.minix.
(2) you're welcome to produce uclibc-based fsck/mkfs for ext2.
(3) my latest bootimage will mount -o ro the rootfs, detect its FSTYPE,
 and use /sbin/fsck.$FSTYPE from the mounted partition, if available.
 On the other hand, it should probably umount it and flush buffers
 instead of mount -o remount,rw. I'll see to that in next version.

I'm told that jffs2 is overkill for CF and ext2 is correct.
I'd use reiserfs or ext3 if it weren't a RAM-killer --
maybe with a small journal???

I use NFS, or rsync over ssh.

I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.
