thanks, but no, it doesn't help.  i made this image by doing dd if=/dev/ad0
of=some.file, but i haven't yet found the magic incantation for being able
to mount the filesystems.

if i ever get some free time i am going to have to open the box up, attach a
real hard disk and try dd'ing the image back onto the disk at least long
enough to get the important files out of it.
