Okay! Good news, I think. I used the 'fixit' mode, that is available
through the installation disk, to mount the disk that fails to mount
during boot up.

What I did was:

mount /dev/mfid0s1a /test

It mounts successfully and I can see everything in that partition.

So I guess the question now is, if I can mount it manually, why
doesn't it mount during the boot process?
