You're confusing disk lables with mount points. Your fstab doesn't have
disklables in it. You told mount to mount /dev/hdb4 on /store, so it
looks for the directory /store, which doesn't exist.
What are you trying to do?
After fiddling around with sarge for some months, I installed etch a couple of weeks ago.
I've done lots of reading and I'm following this list for a while, but I'm new to debian anyway.
I have 4 partitions on my 2nd hd, swap, /tmp, /var & /xyz.
/xyz is the 4th primary partition on my 2nd hd.
When installing etch, at some point partman asked for a mount point for that partition and I entered /xyz.
I use this xyz partition only to store some .iso's and other large files, so I want rename/relabel it to /store. If I do mkdir /store, that would create the dir/mount point on my 1st hd where / is located (correct?). Thus the question is: how to change /xyz to /store on my 2nd hd, so I can do eg. something like this:
mv ~/*.iso /store
so it moves *.iso from ~ on my 1st hd to /store on my 2nd hd.

I fould e2label in /sbin, read the man and tried to use it.

Huh? Sounds like a warm 'welcome to debian' to me.
I guess you don't have the monopoly of wisdom too.
