As a matter of fact, the system log shows this when I try to mount:
Aug 16 10:05:51 ozu kernel: XFS mounting filesystem ide0(3,67)
Aug 16 10:05:52 ozu kernel: XFS: nil uuid in log - IRIX style log
Aug 16 10:05:52 ozu kernel: Starting XFS recovery on filesystem:
ide0(3,67) (dev: 3/67)
Aug 16 10:05:52 ozu kernel: XFS: log mount/recovery failed
Aug 16 10:05:52 ozu kernel: XFS: log mount failed
Does that shed any light?
