I just naively followed the settings for hda6 and
changed /etc/fstab by using:
/dev/hdb6               /mnt/homewd             ext3
defaults   0 0

df -hl
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3              13G  4.2G  7.8G  35% /
/dev/hda2              97M  7.6M   85M   9% /boot
none                  252M     0  252M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda6             5.0G  3.7G  1.1G  78% /home
/dev/hdb1              48G   35G   14G  73% /mnt/win_g
/dev/hdb5              48G  102M   48G   1% /mnt/win_h
/dev/hdb6              89G   13G   72G  16%
/mnt/homewd
/dev/hda1              19G  4.9G   14G  27%
/mnt/windows

It seems hdb6 is back, but I am not sure any possible
future risk. I have to logon as root to do "chmod 777
/mnt/homewd" to get write permission, how to change
fstab so that I get all the permission automatically?

bash: fdisk: command not found

Does that mean I didn't install fdisk?
