    Hi,
    I'm not sure what to do about a problem I'm having. I have 3 HD on a
    computer. One is a NTFS for windows 2000, one is a 40 gig with 35 gigs
    for space and partition that I am trying to set up as a new /home dir,
    and the third is the linux drive. Here is my problem when I try to mount
    it so that I can copy my /home files there:
    mount /dev/hdd2 /mnt/small -t ext3
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdd2,
           or too many mounted file systems

    Well I have repartitioned it using fdisk:
    Disk /dev/hdd: 40.0 GB, 40020664320 bytes
    16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 77545 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes
     
       Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/hdd1 * 1 65535 33029608+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/hdd2 65536 75224 4883256 83 Linux

    >From this can anyone possibly tell me what I've done wrong. If you need
    more info please let me know.
    David
