    Red face problem mounting ext3 fs


    I am trying to mount a ext3 partition but i get an error when i try this:

    Code:
    # mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb3 /home/ES/new
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb3,
           missing codepage or other error
           In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
           dmesg | tail  or so
    This is my fdisk output

    Code:
    Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/hda1   *           1          13      104391   83  Linux
    /dev/hda2              14        9729    78043770   8e  Linux LVM
    
    Disk /dev/sda: 61.4 GB, 61492838400 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7476 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    
    Disk /dev/sda doesn't contain a valid partition table
    
    Disk /dev/sdb: 61.4 GB, 61492838400 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7476 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sdb1   *           1        5099    40957686    7  HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sdb2            5100        5112      104422+  83  Linux
    /dev/sdb3            5113       14952    79039800   8e  Linux LVM
    I'm not to experienced in the world of linux and i consider myself to be a total noob, for now .
    If you need to know anything else about my system let me know.
    Thank you for your help in advanced.

    you can't mount partition that is marked as physical volume directly. You need to access logical volumes on it through LVM devices (usually /dev/vg-name/lv-name).
