cant mount second drive



Hello all,

used to be i could install a second drive, taken from another linux box,
and mount it with something like:

mount /dev/hdb2 /data

well now on a fresh fc6 (64 bit) install i can not do that. 

here's my set up:

2 drives: hda and hdb. hda holds my new install. hdb was from an older
install and i need to get files from it. it's from an i386 install and
the machine kinda melted down.

when i run the command:

mount /dev/hdb2 /data

i get the mount: you must specify the filesystem type error. i know this
is an ext3 filesystem (it's also from FC6). if i try to specify the
filesystem with:

mount -t ext3 /dev/hdb2 /data

i get:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb2,
       missing codepage or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

what am i doing wrong?

i can mount /dev/hdb1 and i get the boot partition showing up just find.
but hdb2 will not show up.

any suggestions?

thanks all.

jack
