When I mount for example "mount /dev/hda1 somefolder" or "mount /dev/hda5 somefolder" it goes well, but when I mount "mount /dev/hda6 somefolder" it says : "Mount: Operation Not Supported"

have some info and it's all bad. This is from the grub manual you didn't read (but might not have been able to):
16 : Inconsistent filesystem structure
This error is returned by the filesystem code to denote an internal
error caused by the sanity checks of the filesystem structure on
disk not matching what it expects. This is usually caused by a
corrupt filesystem or bugs in the code handling it in GRUB.

This is pretty consistent with your failure to mount the partition.

For ext2/ext3 I suggest
e2fsck -a -n /dev/hda6
to see what happens. The "-n" answers "no" to all questions: it does a check without writing results to the disk.
