   But at least on Red Hat 6.1 and TurboLinux 6.0 it does not work during
   bootup. Does it need /proc mounted?

Yes, it does, so it can scan valid partitions using /proc/paritions.
In e2fsprogs 1.19 there will be an explicit error message to indicate
this case. IIRC, I believe with RedHat 6.2 /proc is mounted so that
fsck does the right thing. (I did have to modify /erc/rc.sysinit for
RH 6.1, but I don't remember needing to modify it for RedHat 6.2).
