reiserfs & mount


A few days back I had downloaded the latest versions of linux-util and e2fsprogs
since I converted my ext2 partition to ext3.

Now I have a free 1 GB partition /dev/hda9. I wanted to try out reiserfs on it.
So I created reiserfs partition (mkreiserfs). Everything fine till here. Now
surprise. If I put the following in /etc/fstab :

/dev/hda9      /mnt/hda9       reiserfs defaults,errors=remount-ro       0       1

and try to mount I get the following :

debian:/home/rajesh# mount /mnt/hda9
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda9,
       or too many mounted file systems

As u can see below reiserfs kernel module is loaded.
debian:/home/rajesh# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
reiserfs              150816   0  (autoclean)

loop                    8000   0  (unused)

Now if I try to mount the same reisefs partition with :

debian:/home/rajesh# mount -t reiserfs /dev/hda9 /mnt/hda9/

it mounts fine.

debian:/home/rajesh# mount
/dev/hda3 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro,errors=remount-ro)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/hda5 on /mnt/data type vfat (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,errors=remount-ro)
/dev/hda6 on /mnt/funstuff type vfat (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,errors=remount-ro)
/dev/hda1 on /mnt/windows type vfat (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,errors=remount-ro)
/dev/hda9 on /mnt/hda9 type reiserfs (rw)

Why is mounting after putting the appropriate entry in /etc/fstab not working ?
The same stuff works with -t reiserfs option to mount.

Any ideas ?

Thanks in advance.

Warm Regards
