I haven't tried recently, but a year or so ago FreeBSD could not use ext3 as 
such. There is a port that adds ext3 fsck support for syncing the journal, 
FreeBSD can then mount it as ext2. The problem with that is that you then 
have a choice between reliability and decent write speed according to whether 
you mount it  synchronously or asynchronously.

I found that even having an  ext3 transfer partition  that's  mounted by 
default was a bit of a pain, because without a journal or softupdates, 
booting after a crash can take a long time.
