Have a newly partitioned HD with following config;
root@ttyp0[knoppix]# fdisk -l
without OS installed.

/dev/hda5, /hda6/, hda7 and /hda8 all have data files. All partitions can be mouted previously on running Knoppix 4.0 LiveCD.
An hour before ran Knoppix 4.0 to browse Internets and have some files saved on /dev/hda8. Those files were not download on Internet. Just copied some text/information from Internet on existing files on /dev/hda8. The PC/Knoppix LiveCD worked without problem and was turned off later.
Now after turning on the PC and starting Knoppix LiveCD it was found /dev/hda8 could not be mounted.
root@ttyp0[knoppix]# mount /dev/hda8 /mnt/hda8
Other partitions can be mouted without problem. The data/files on them can be read.
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda8,
or too many mounted file systems
Please advise how to fix this problem.
You might want to pass the -t option with mount so for example with a fat32 filesystem:
Also in knoppix there are usually Hard Drive icons on the desktop which you can view if you click on them - have you tried this approch? (note you might have to RightClick and then 'Mount').
mount -t vfat /dev/hda8 /mnt/hda8
Tks for your advice.
It was not the problem of the flag. There was some wrong in the partition concerned. Problem solved by running
# fsck.ext3 device
Knoppix can mount a partition by just running;
