I mounted UFS2 paritions under Linux like this:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~]$ grep fbsd7 /etc/fstab
/dev/sda9      /mnt/fbsd7          ufs    ufstype=ufs2,user,auto,ro, 1 2
/dev/sda11    /mnt/fbsd7/var    ufs    ufstype=ufs2,user,auto,ro, 1 2
/dev/sda12    /mnt/fbsd7/tmp   ufs    ufstype=ufs2,user,auto,ro, 1 2
/dev/sda13    /mnt/fbsd7/usr    ufs    ufstype=ufs2,user,auto,ro, 1 2

Same problem in here .. 
Same FS ...
Using the same line ...

I couldn't figure out a solution .. 
I either get a 'Bad file descriptor' for directory /linux' or 

$ ls /linux 
No such file or directory

FreeBSD 7.0 i386 and Linux i386 in here

Same in here .. 
I've got all of my music on a ext3 partition and pdfs and pictures on another 
ext3 partition .. I only need to mount those two in order to get FreeBSD's 
Amarok access to my music collection.

Any help will be greatly apprecciated ..
