Hi

I have a firewire disk (120Gb) on /dev/sde with 2 partitions (ext3).
When I access /media/ieee1394_sbp2-0030e010ee0c3856-0-1p1/ or
/media/ieee1394_sbp2-0030e010ee0c3856-0-1p2/ and look at th log messages
(dmesg) I get:


FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev sde1.
EXT2-fs warning (device sde1): ext2_fill_super: mounting ext3 filesystem
as ext2

FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev sde2.
EXT2-fs warning (device sde2): ext2_fill_super: mounting ext3 filesystem
as ext2

What has FAT anything to do with ext3??!?!?

I did:
# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sde bs=512
# fdisk /dev/sde (and created a 70Gb partition + a 50Gb partition)
# mkfs.ext3 /dev/sde1
# mkfs.ext3 /dev/sde2

Any info appreciated.

Thanks

/Fred
