[CentOS] JFS in CentOS

I'm relatively new to CentOS, but I've been using linux as my main
operating system on both the desktop and server ends for the past 4 years.
I currently have a PIII server with two 160GB IDE hard drives in it, in
a virtual RAID 1 array. At the time of installation, the only FS choices
for the largest partition, 120GB, were ext2 and ext3. I chose ext3, but
now am wishing to reformat the partition as JFS to skip long file system
I've done Google searches regarding the topic, which lead me to added
centos.plus to my repo list, and installed the only kernel I see as
being available from CentOSPlus, and yet I still have no JFS modules
loaded or anywhere in /lib/modules/. I installed JFSUtils from the
CentOSPlus repo, but have no way to use the partition that has been
created (by myself, using mkfs.jfs). Short of compiling a kernel with
JFS support from the source package provided with CentOS, I don't know
what to do.
Has anyone else used JFS on CentOS 5.2 successfully? How did you do it?
