That's a funny line!
If you check man mount you'll see the way to mount anything is by giving the the location of what you want to mount (e.g. /dev/hdb), then where you want to mount it (e.g. /mnt/hd2). The line you posted lacks the first ingredient.
Supposing your new HDD is connected to IDE1 as slave you should change 'none' to '/dev/hdb' (without the '') and make sure /opt2 exists.
