Did you format the /dev/sda1 with a filesystem?
Do you have an entry for this filesystem in /etc/fstab?

mount -t fstype /dev/sda1 /mnt/Euro

Replace fstype with the filesystem type of the partition.

yes i have formated de /dev/sda

i have formated the partition to ntfs ...won`t work

root@eos1:/mnt# mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/Euro
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
or too many mounted file systems


i have formated with ext3 ...nothing


I do not have an entry in fstab but i wanna mount the partition manually

What command did you use to format the partition with ext3?

It does matter. cfdisk just creates the partition.
You then need to create the filesystem with the mkfs command. linux can not create a NTFS filesystem. If you are looking to share data between windows and linux then I would use a FAT32 filesystem.

With cfdisk make sure the partition ID is 83
To create an ext3 filesystem as root enter the following command.
mke2fs -j /dev/sda1

You should be able to mount the filesystem
mount -t ext3 /dev/sda1 /mnt/Euro

try using mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda1 (if you want it ext3)
then try mounting using
mount -t ext3 /dev/sda1 /mnt Euro
