	So, first you'll have to create the mount point (mkdir
	/blah). Then, use something like:
	mount -t ext2 /dev/correct_partition /blah

	It seems that /dev/hda8 is not a partition with an ext2 fs
	(you were using this previously?).  Perhaps you meant
	/dev/hda9 or any other?

	BTW, /dev/hdb8 is also not a partition with a Linux fs. It is
	probably a blank partition?
