mounting problem


#fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hdc: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 7297 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdc1 * 1 7296 58605088+ 7 HPFS/NTFS

#mount -t ntfs /dev/hdc1 /mnt/hdc1

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc1,
or too many mounted file systems

I dont get it. it was mountable before I resetup my system. now I cant mount it at all. I even download the ntfs rpm for redhat. Anyone know what is going on?

i gave up. now i'm having trouble converting ntfs to ext3. what a headache day.

I used mkfs -t ext3 /dev/hdc1 to partition/format it but it still show up as ntfs
