Using Webmin and I changed one of my mount's filesystem to "shows"

Using webmin to set up a server for the house. Everything seemed fine until I rebooted and then saw that one of the mounts that I was trying to share got changed fro ext3 to "shows" Now I can't figure out how to change it back and I am really not sure how I did it in the first place.

I don't think that I am explaining myself very well but I am really new to this any any help would be appreciated.

Here's a screen shot if that help:

You can edit /etc/fstab from command line to change filesystem type.
