This is a bit OT, but I have used Ghost with ext2 partitions with no
 problems whatsoever. I'm not sure if ext3 is supported or not.

However, if you run Lilo, you must boot back into the system with some
sort of Lilo bootdisk and run lilo to pick up the changes.

Grub, on the other hand, works without having to do anything.
