I created it as 3TiB ext4 partition initially, and when I went to mount
it, mount told me that it was a wrong fs type, bad superblock, missing
codepage and many other dreadful things, even though it was created and
mounted fine on Ubuntu 10.04.  I got the idea that Debian Live doesn't
support ext4 as of debian-live-507-i386-lxde-desktop.img, so I used ext3.

I thought maybe I need to be more explicit with mount here and pass it
some parameter to identify what it is...  mount -t ext4 actually informed
me that etx4 was an unknown filesystem type.

Which gets me right to the point:  How do you mount this 3TiB ext4
partition within Debian live.

I envy your geographic location, if I could only be 100km from the Alps...
