If ext2/3 is using new options you can normally turn them off using 
tune2fs and then e2fsck with the version which support the option and it 
will turn it off on the disk.  I do this all the time with the BBC which 
by default uses options not supported by CentOS.  (And I use BBC to 
image lab machines).

I assume most other FC -> CentOS4 issues will be solvable, same as RH9 
-> CentOS3 and RH72 -> CentOS2.
