Have you tried specifying the filesystem? mount -t ext3 for example, or is hdc an ext3 device and you can't mount it? Then problably ext3 isn't included in your kernel config.

Seems that ext3 support is missing. Try if this works:

mount -t ext3 /dev/hdc1 /mnt/hdc

if it doesn't, substitute ext3 with a ext2. It might work, though I'm not sure.
