Waht is up with mount?



What is this all about?

If I mount an ext3 filesystem like this:

mount /dev/hdb1 /backup

It mounts, but "ls /backup" produces : Literally !

???.??? ??.??? ??.??? ??.??? ??.??? ??.??? ??.%^? ??.%^? ??.4^? ??.4^? ??.4^? ?a.?e? ?a.?e? ?m" ?n"



If I mount like like this:


mount -t ext3 /dev/hdb1 /backup

"ls /backup" shows the actual files correctly.

Since there isn't an entry in fstab for /backup, I am not sure why "mount" actually mounts the drive.

Is this normal?
