Posted by Juanito on May 18 2008,07:15Did you make a frugal hd install or traditional hd install?
What command(s) are you using, something like this?
Could you paste the command(s) that resulted in the error message above.

I found the solution
Posted by marroyo49 on June 12 2008,13:39I had the same error message when trying to mount a secondary hard drive using: mount /dev/hdb5/ mnt/hdb5
The hard drive was physically placed in the IDE1 position and detected in the bios.
Running: cfdsik /dev/hdb showed that the hdb5 partition was created and was of FS type 83 (Linux Extended), but I still couldn't mount.
I finally figured out that I hadn't formatted the drive, so I used:
mke2fs -cv /dev/hdb5 to do so, and after the filesystem was created I could mount till the cows came home!
