"mount -t ext3 /dev/hdc /Big-Drive/"  though generally you would
mount /dev/hdcX and not just /dev/hdc.


Thanks Adam. Yes, I tried that too. Still no luck:

[root moe ~]# mount -t ext3 /dev/hdc2 /Big-Drive/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc2,
       missing codepage or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so
