media storage challenge

Admittedly my ultimate shortcoming is file system and I need to
configure a data partition I have labelled media/storage.
/sbin/mkfs.ext3 -m 1 /dev/sda8 (this went well)
Then I tried (hit and miss)
mount -t ext3 /dev/sda8 /data2
mount: mount point /data2 does not exist
So can someone take me by the hand and give me the sequential terminal
codes so I hve complete control of this partition as single user
Happy Thanksgiving and thabk you for your attention
