Fstab - "mount point does not exist"

Mounting a filesystem containing another install of linux, I get said error "mount point does not exist".

fstab entry is
/dev/hda5 /linux4 ext3 defaults 0 0

Would provide more details, if I had any idea what to provide.

You need to make a directory for the mount - that's what the error message means.

mkdir /linux4
