I have a 120Gb HD in a firewire enclosure. The HD is seen as /dev/sda.
There is 2 primary partitions on the HD: /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2.
Both partitions have been formatted with Ext3.

I keep getting these messages in /var/log/messages for both /dev/sda1
and /dev/sda2 every 5 seconds...

kernel: EXT2-fs warning: maximal mount count reached, running e2fsck
is recommended
kernel: FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
kernel: VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev sda2.
kernel: EXT2-fs warning (device sda2): ext2_fill_super: mounting ext3
filesystem as ext2

Both partitions appear under /media as

What's going on here?
