    why can't i mount /dev/sdb3?
    Code:
    # man mount


    but i don't know why i should make 3 partitions... how it was in the constructions (how to)...
    on ubuntu the partitions weren't like this...
    BT is not ubuntu first of all. Second making partitions is a user preference in most cases. The instructions you used were the preferences of the author. You can change them as you see fit. I would suggest a bit of reading on partitions.

    can you tell me why i made 3 partitions?
    Because you followed the tutorial without question.
    and if it was usefull?
    Depends
    and i don't find my /home/username/... where is this...
    Did you create this ??

    i thaugth it would be like the kubuntu system
    Nope its not kubuntu either.

    may be i'm just confused
    only a little but it can be fixed with some reading.

    Again the amount and types of partitions are really a user preference in most cases.
    Do you have a link to the tutorial that you used and maybe this can shed some light on the reason the partitions and types were chosen.
    If you look at the dual boot movie that was made by muts Chief Back Track Dev he stated that he use reiserfs but you (the user) could use any format you wanted but that he preferred that one.
    For more indepth info on partition format types you might wanna have a look at this site.
