Just do an ls /dev/da0* and simply mount -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt/usbck For the second part of the question, I usually prefer to keep these drives FAT formatted and tar gzip the files I need in there. I suppose if you need to make UFS on it you will have to bsdlabel and newfs it. Have never done it, but have a look at this page:
http://typo.submonkey.net/articles/2006/04/13/installing-freebsd-on-usb-stick-episode-2 He is installing FreeBSD on a flash drive. Although not directly relevant to what you are doing, he is showing all commands for creating a UFS on the flash drive, and should be enough to get you started. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
