But how do I tell it that its an ext2 system and not fat ? Not having
an entry in fstab, it seems to expect fat, and if I try to mount it it
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda4,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
and dmesg says
[ 345.801075] FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
[ 345.801085] VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev sda4
