Question Mounting ReiserFS Problems?

I have three partitions: one with WinXP (hdc1, NTFS), the other with Mandrake (hdc5, ReiserFS), and the other with Red Hat (hdc6, Ext3). I want to mount my Mandrake partition under Red Hat, but I can't seem to do so!

I've been using the command: mount -t reiserfs /dev/hdc5 /mnt/mandrake
It won't work! I have created the /mnt/mandrake folder btw. I have installed the NTFS kernal patch, and have mount my hdc1 NTFS partition using the same command (changed for the partion of course). Using Hardware Browser, I'm told:

>hdc1 ntfs
>hdc2 Extended
>>hdc5 reiserfs
>>hdc6 ext3

It looks like my two linux partitions are both grouped under hdc2 (I don't know where extended came from), but I don't know if this could be causing problems or how to by pass it. I am booted from the hdc6 ext3 partition though!

I get the error message: " wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc5, or too many mounted file systems."

Does anyone know why this won't mount, or what I can do to get it to mount? Did Red Hat remove ReiserFS support from the kernal (like they did with NTFS)? If they did, how can I add it back?

I guess you have to recompile your kernel. I don't think Redhat 9 has reiserfs builded in the default kernel.

Have you tried mounting without the "-t reiserfs" option?
