How do I use the .tar.gz to patch the kernel to support EXT3?

There should be a directory called /usr/src/linux-2.4.13 containing the kernel sources, then do:

  cd /usr/src
  gunzip < ext3-2.4-0.9.13-2413.gz | patch -p0

see http://www.uow.edu.au/~andrewm/linux/ext3/ then do make menuconfig and select the EXT3 options you want. Do the regular making-of-the-kernel after that. (i.e make ; make install)
