Use "vi" and edit/correct /etc/fstab to show your /dev/sda6 partition
and its mount point.
Then make sure that mount point exist. Once you have the mount point
move the contents of the old directory to the new one - if needed.
Then once all of that is done
Follow the line in fstab so that your line looks some like the others
for the drive
Downside - there can be links that end up broken.
Check "man fstab"
