Default Access external Fedora filesystem

Hi Gurus, I have a dual boot system with Fedora 7 on one drive and Fedora 8 on another. I'd like the Fedora 8 system to access the data on the Fedora 7 system. Fedora 8 sees 7 as sdc.

If I enter:

$ sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/sdc1 /mnt/test
$ ls /mnt/test
config-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 initrd-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7.img System.map-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 vmlinuz-2.6.22.9-91.fc7
config-2.6.22.9-91.fc7 initrd-2.6.22.9-91.fc7.img System.map-2.6.22.9-91.fc7
grub lost+found vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7

but I can't access the data on the filesystem from there. If I enter:

$ sudo umount /mnt/test
$ sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/sdc2 /mnt/test

I get:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc2,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Is it possible to access the data on the F7 system from booted F8? If so, how?

Many TIA
Craig
