Almost got new drive added but need help!

Okay, I did the patitions and stuff and then did

# mkreiserfs /dev/hdb5
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 1 7476 60050938+ 5 Extended
/dev/hdb5 1 7476 60050907 83 Linux

And so anyhow, I did that, then I added the following to my /etc/fstab

/dev/hdb5 /test reiserfs defaults 0 1

I restarted my machine, and

I can't cd /test

-bash: cd: /test: No such file or directory

I believe I'm really close, but what am I doing wrong???


This is going to be a secondary drive that I'm going to mount for storage and such, any help would be appriciated!

Did you create the directory /test first? The directory has to exist for you to be able to mount something to it.
