DD not working

I have been trying to use the F7 that I copied to the new Hard Drive but instead I'm getting very strange results. With just the new Hard Drive mounted I set up Grub and changed grub.conf so the proper root was showing. But it would not boot and the error was file system not good. So DD copy must have ruined the file system I put on.

So back to the Old Hard Drive and it has some weird stuff going. I wanted to fix the /dev/sdb5 file system and here is what happend:

[root k5di ~]# fsck /dev/sdb5
fsck 1.40.2 (12-Jul-2007)
e2fsck 1.40.2 (12-Jul-2007)
/dev/sdb5 is mounted.
WARNING!!!  Running e2fsck on a mounted filesystem may cause
SEVERE filesystem damage.

Do you really want to continue (y/n)? yes

f7: recovering journal
f7: clean, 174545/10246368 files, 3132553/10239421 blocks
[root k5di ~]# mount -t ext2 /dev/sdb5 /mnt
mount: /dev/sdb5 already mounted or /mnt busy

The last 2 lines say that /dev/sdb5 is mounted to this Old Hard Drive somehow. I did not do this. /etc/fsack did not do this. So not sure what is going on. And last the /etc/grub.conf has been changed by something to the wrong on this computer. Weird!
