why can't i mount my drives


here is my fstab

# This is a root linux ext2 partition:
/dev/hdb2 / ext2 errors=remount-ro,defaults 0 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
none /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/hdc,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=auto,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hdd1 /mnt/hd2 auto user,noauto,umask=0,exec 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
# The 'sw' option indicates that the swap partition is to be activated
# with 'swapon -a'.
/dev/hdb1 swap swap sw 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/hd auto user,noauto,umask=0,exec 0 0


I get a file system error on hda and hdd, they were formatted as ext2

Here is my fdisk
root@localhost kevin]# fdisk -l

You refer to them as hda and hdd, have you partitioned them correctly? (it is possible to create a filesystem (or format, as you say) to the actual disk (that is, not having any partitions, only raw data), but it is not recommended.

hmm.. your partition tables look ok. What command
Code:
file -sL /dev/hda1
says? It should say something about ext2 filesystem. If not, the filesystem is not made correctly. You can create one with a command
Code:
mkfs -t ext2 /dev/hda1

I switched my drives around and only have 2 now and reinstalled. It seems OK now.

Thanks for the advice, I am sure more questions will be coming :-)
