Ext3 is Ext2 + journal file. Let me quote the documentation:

"ext3 filesystems may still be mounted by ext2 as long as they have
been cleanly unmounted.  ext2 will refuse to mount ext3 filesystems
which have not been cleanly shut down, because there is live data
still in the journal which ext2 does not know how to deal with."

So you should have no trouble mounting ext3 partitions.
