Check filesystem


Hey everyone, how do i check the filesystem for a hard disk (ext2 or ext3) in redhat 7.3? I used the command 'fdisk' and my partition for /dev/hdd says "linux extended". Is that ext2 or ext3? Thanx everyone....

Partition type and file-system are non-related...

Partition type 83 (Linux native) could be either
of the two, or Reiser, or XFS, or ... :)

Information on what you're actually using
can be found in /etc/fstab

Cheers,
Tink

Hey Tinkster, i did "cat /etc/fstab" and i get this for /dev/hdd:

/dev/hdd /home/hdd auto defaults 1 1

I editted the fstab file so that hdd will load up upon startup. But i dont know what the filesystem is. Is there a way to find out?
Thanx for your help

Well, since you seem to be using the kernels automount
feature ...
Code:
mount
should spit out (I hope ;}) what
its actual file-system is...

Cheers,
Tink
