Problems mounting 2nd hd (hdb1)

Yes, back again with more problems, but one of more concern... I was trying to install Fedora Core 3 test 2, it was the incorrect version (64bit vs 32bit) stupid me. and It told me to try the 32 bit, and locked up, I had to reset my computer.....Well of course you guessed it, I had problems.... my computer came up with the error while trying to mount my second hard drive hdb, partioned using jfs as hdb1.

mount /dev/hdb1
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb1,
or too many mounted file systems.

I double checked fstab, which is still up to date.

Then I checked my hardware browser it still lists hdb1 as a reconized jfs partition.

the same with fdisk:
# /sbin/fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 100.0 GB, 100030242816 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 12161 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 14 144 1052257+ 82 Linux swap
/dev/hda3 145 12161 96526552+ 83 Linux

Disk /dev/hdb: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 1 14593 117218241 83 Linux
.................................................................................................... .....

Frankly I'm stummped, I've tried to unmount and remount, but it claims the device is not mounted, which maybe it is or isn't I don't know, I can't tell and I'm pissed that I can't figure it out. So if anyone has any suggestions.....please help ..... thank you so much for your time.

additional info

tried a file system check

# /sbin/fsck -p /dev/hdb1
fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
fsck.jfs version 1.1.4, 30-Oct-2003
processing started: 10/2/2004 7.35.53
The current device is: /dev/hdb1
Block size in bytes: 4096
Filesystem size in blocks: 29304560
**Phase 0 - Replay Journal Log
Filesystem is clean.

GOT IT TO WORK NOW...... SORRY for the problem, it was easy for me to solve, just had to do the fschk, hope I didn't cause anyone to waste time over the problem, but now that I know how to fix it, I'll let others know so they won't have to bother you guys with simple problems....and again thank you for your time.

Much Thanks,
Joshua M. Hull
