----------------NEWBIE ALERT------------------

I was having trouble with my FC1 system, so I deleted the /, /boot,
and swap partitions, leaving my /video partition.  I installed FC3 and
have it up and running.  However when I try to mount the /video
partition it fails.

Here is what I did:

[root at mythtv etc]# /sbin/fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hdb: 200.0 GB, 200049647616 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 24321 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hdb1   *           1          13      104391   83  Linux
/dev/hdb2              14        1288    10241437+  83  Linux
/dev/hdb3            1289        1419     1052257+  82  Linux swap
/dev/hdb4            1420       24321   183960315   83  Linux
[root at mythtv etc]# mount -t xfs /dev/hdb4 /video
mount: mount point /video does not exist

I know that /dev/hdb4 is the /video partition from the previous
install.  This is where all my recordings, etc are.

Any help would be appreciated.
