Unable to mount JFS partition on Live CD

I am experiencing JFS mount problems with the Live CD (Hoary 5.04). I
have a JFS (extended) partition on my laptop which is /dev/hda6 on my
installed mandrake system. In the Ubuntu Live CD cfdisk detects that
partition as JFS too, however when I (su)do:

> mkdir /mnt/disk
> mount -t jfs /dev/hda6 /mnt/disk

i get an error about bad fs type or bad superblock.

in my mandrake /etc/fstab I have:
/dev/hda6 /home jfs noatime 1 2

JFS module is loaded (modprobe).

Where the problem should be?
