[Wolves] Mounting var directory

Hi All,

I've screwed up the directory structure on my webserver and can't figure
out how to correct it.

I was trying to add a drive and move my var directory to it.

Currently on boot, I have the var directory listed, but it is empty, and
as a result I can only boot to a prompt.

When I dug around and mounted hda5 , I found that this contains the var
directory and contents, so I have been trying to mount this on boot in
fstab with 
/dev/hda5    /var    ext3 defaults 1 2

without joy.

Any ideas?
