Filesystem support on SD card

Just wondering if the Hero supports other filing systems other than fat32 on SD (stock rom - no root)

No, only fat32.

I would like to run ext2 ideally.

I'm not sure if that's possible even with a third-party (custom) ROM. Most support ext2/ext3 (even ext4 in some cases) for a second apps-to-SD partition, but all retain fat32 for the /sdcard.
