The ext2 support that can be custom compiled into the freebsd kernel is
definitely sufficient to mount and read data from ext2 formatted
partitions.  i have heard though, and perhaps someone on this list might
confirm or discredit this notion, that attempting to use ext2 support (not
journal aware) for writing on an ext3 (with journal) partition can ruin
the journals on the filesystem.
