Need help partitioning and mounting my second hd
OK, I just installed Unbuntu warty warthog RC on my first hd. I was able to mount my second hd (ntfs) and transfer my backup files to my first hd. Then I used cfdisk to partition my second hd to a single "Linux" partition (whatever that means). I, however, was not able to mount this hd, after partitioning. I keep getting the error:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb1,
or too many mounted file systems
The command that I was using was:
mount -t [fs] /dev/hdb1 /mnt/hdb
I tried specififying several different fs types, there (ext2/3, auto, etc.).
Yes, I've got root privilages, yes, I unmounted the drive first, yes, /mnt/hdb/ exists.
Also, what fs, specifically, does cfdisk mean by "Linux"? If it's not ext3, how can I partition to ext3 (I'd prefer to use that, so it matches my first hd)?
Thanks in advance for any help.
