OK, another update: fdisk identifies this disk as such:
Disk name: ad5 FDISK Partition Editor
DISK Geometry: 7476 cyls/255 heads/63 sectors = 120101940 sectors (58643MB)
Offset Size(ST) End Name PType Desc Subtype Flags
0 63 62 - 6 unused 0
63 120101877 120101939 ad5s1 3 freebsd 165 C
120101940 1260 120103199 - 6 unused 0
After looking closer at disklabel, I see that it has selected the one and only
partition on the disk:
Disk: ad5 Partition name: ad5s1 Free: 120101877 blocks (58643MB)
But still sees no filesystems. If I do `ls -l /dev/ad5*`, I get only:
crw-r----- 1 root wheel 116, 0x0001002a Feb 2 02:11 /dev/ad5
No /dev/ad5s1, etc., and `mount /dev/ad5s1 /home` produces only:
mount: /dev/ad5s1: No such file or directory
Do I need to make device nodes for the ad5s1 partition? I'm not sure how,
