Can't mount filesystem !!

I have installed Slackware 10.2 on my pc in /dev/hdb1(reiserfs) and in other partition in /dev/hdb4 I have Ubuntu 5.10. Ubuntu didn't mount the Slackware partition!

When I look into to /etc/fstab it still shows hdb1 as NTFS(which used to be before). During Slackware installation I have chnged hdb1 filesystem type to reiserfs filesystem. So, basically it is not updated in the /etc/fstab. If I typein cfdisk /dev/hdb I can see hdb1 and hdb2 are in reiserfs format.

I have tried mounting manually by typing 'mount /dev/hdb1 -t reiserfs /mnt/hdb1' it mounts but when I go to the /mnt/hdb1/home directory or /etc of the mounted partition it has mounted the Ubuntu partition!! I have checked twice whether I made any mistake in mounting the partition-everything looks perfect.

One more thing is I can't access internet from Slackware. I have used static IP's by configuring manually. Where can I find the eth0 config?
In Debian they are in /etc/network/interfaces where can I find the same sought of thing in Slackware ?

frist thing, you need to reconfigure your fstab in ubunto to connect to the reiserfs. if you set it to auto that should work, other thing you might need to load a module to have reiser support.

second, in slackware run netconfig to configure your eth0.
if you still need to edit the config manually the file is:
