About the question mark. Do you want me to type the command as it is, or is does the question mark indicate that everything under the primary partition will be mounted in /mnt? > > Works with 'R.I.P. 11-6' (Slackware based / 2.4 kernel) > It is compiled into the kernel on this distro. > > (There is probably a module option somewhere under Debian) > > HTH > Keith Yes. Thanks. I checked out the config file of my linux kernel and found that UFS is supported. Also, the issue was that I wasn't mounting it right or something. I was trying to mount the primary partition I installed FreeBSD on. But then, I was later told that I need to mount the partitions that are created inside this primary partition. (as in whatever that is called- slices or whatever). I installed FreeBSD on a Secondary Hard disk ..on Primary partition hdb1 (under Linux.) I guess it is called as something ad1s1 under FreeBSD. But then, I think that to mount the partition properly, I need to mount the ad1s1a, ad1s1b thing to get it right. -- Regards, Amit. http://copperskullcprogramming.blogspot.com _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
