Native Installation: How do I switch to Ext2 or Ext3?

I've had ReiserFS mess up my filesystem each and every time the disk has less then 10% free space. So I wish to switch over to Ext 2 or Ext 3 but wonder if this is possible?

If it is, could someone tell me how ? Thanks :)

Now I've not tested this to see if the tools are there or anything like that.... this is off the top of my head...

From the "HOWTO: Fully Native" sticky
And format,
# mkreiserfs /dev/hda2
# mkswap /dev/hda1
# swapon /dev/hda1
Should just be replacing
mkreiserfs /dev/hda2
mkfs -t ext3 /dev/hda2
