When I do 'mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/hdb1' I get 'mount: you must specify the filesystem type'. I don't get that becous it already says in cfdisk and fdisk that the system is Linux(id 83).
This is what it says in /var/log/messages about it:
Jun 2 20:42:17 localhost kernel: FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
Jun 2 20:42:17 localhost kernel: VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev hdb1.
PLEASE help me fix this, I can't continue anything untill I have gotten this hd to work properly.
