How to Mount Red Hat Partition


I have Red Hat 9.0 installed on hda and a new slackware 9.0 installation
on hdb. I can mount the slackware partition from Red Hat with
mount -t ext3 /dev/hdb3 /b-drive/hdb3

On the slackware partition, I have created a mount point at
/a-drive/hdb3. When I boot up slack and attempt the following:

mount -t ext3 /dev/hda3 /a-drive/hda3

intended to mount the red hat partition, I get an error message.
Sorry, but I did not record the error message verbatim and I'm now
back on the RH partition.

If anyone can spot an improper syntax, please let me know the correct
syntax, else I can reboot to slack and write down the error message.
Thanks
Tim

taking into account:
a- the user you are using to mount has permisions to mount
b- redhat part. is formatted ext3
c- /a-drive/hdb3 is a existing directory
d- the part. of redhat you want is on hda3 and not hda2 or 1, or somehting else,

you are using the correct syntax.
-tw

p.s. - while in slack, try " fdisk -l " for a list of part.'s the system sees.

[tj]DUH! It's on hda6. Whop me with a wet noodle! Thanks for asking those
questions! And I know *I* will have more. Trying to migrate to slack before
Red Hat drive dies off.... [/tj]

you are using the correct syntax.

[tj]While in Red Hat did "fdisk -l". Thanks for reminding me[/tj]
