Ok so i did that, then
mount -t reiserfs /hda2 /dev/music retrurns Mount point /dev/music does not exsist....
thanks, mike
this

mount -t reiserfs /hda2 /dev/music

should be

mount -t reiserfs /dev/hda2 /mnt/music

but only after you create the directory, see above post.

sorry that was a typo on my part..... i had typed in mount -t reiserfs /dev/hda2 /mnt/music, i just did not copy it correctly in my post, when i do that i get,
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda2, or too many mounted file systems
thanks mike

did you also try the mount command w/ the ext2 and ext3 file systems? what file system is hda2? did you make the directory music in /mnt? just trying to hash out whether a step was missed, or possibly incorrect syntax.

Hi, celt,

I am a newbie too, I saw all your answer and question, I think you should make fs to your partition first, something like : /sbin/mkfs.ext2 /dev/hda2
Then you can mount your partition. Thanks, no harm to try.

good luck.
