Problem installing Slack.


I'm trying to install Slackware (full installation) and after it's done with the first cd and I'm supposed to put in the second one I pressed ALT + F4 where it says the following:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdd,
or too many mounted file systems

I have no idea what I've done wrong so I'd appreciate some help. Here's some info that might or might not be useful.


hda1 -- -- Primary -- -- ext3 -- -- 7698.87 Mb
hda2 -- -- Primary -- -- Linux swap -- -- 649.80 Mb
hda3 -- -- Primary -- -- ext3 -- -- 98.71 Mb
hdb1 -- -- Primary -- -- ext3 -- -- 10262.06 Mb
hdd1 -- -- Primary -- -- ext3 -- -- 41118.18 Mb

hda1 = /
hda2 = swap
hda3 = /boot
hdb1 = /home
hdd1 = /share (this is where I'll put my music and stuff like that, first name I thought of)

Sounds like a bad CD to me. Try reburning the second ISO if you can.
Actually, check the MD5 sum of the ISO you downloaded, it may be a corrupt image.

Well, I've used the same CD's to install Slackware succesfully in the past and there's not a single scratch or anything on 'em.
Any other idea?

it could be a corrupt cd image, did you check the image?
(When downloading the ISO, there are a couple of things you can download, namely the ISO itself, a README and a check-file. It's called something like CHECKSUMS.md5, try checking the ISO.

Do you actually READ the rest of the thread? Or just the question and then reply?

It sounds as though it believes that hdd is the problem. What is hdc - is it the cd drive or another drive that the system is expecting to see but isn't?

Have you tried disk checking hdd?

Oh, and:

Yea, hdc is the CD.
When installing I chose "check and format" on all the disks and I don't think there was any problem then. At least I didn't notice any. Should I check again? If so, how?
It's still waiting for me to put in the second CD to install the rest.

Well, now I was going to give it another try and install Slack again. The filesystem used on all disks was ext3 but I decided I'd go with ReiserFS. I chose "format" and not "check and format" and when I press ALT + F4 I see

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda,
or too many mounted file systems

So I guess that's on all of 'em. Any thouhgs on this? Any at all?

Deleted all the partitions, rebooted and made 'em all again. Then I checked and formatted them (chose ext3) and everything seemed fine. Not a single problem. When I started installing (full installation) I pressed ALT + F4 and there's the same message again. (/dev/hdd1)
