The only difference I see is that in this case, you don't specify
the filesystem type, and mount figures it out itself. So, are
you sure it's ext3? Does
  mount -t ext3 /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
work? what does dmesg (or /var/log/kern.log) report about the filesystem
type after you successfully mounted it?
