Agreed. Sorry, been there, done that. Doesn't work if I use Primary/Logical/Primary. /dev/ad0s5 exists. #mount -t msdos /dev/ad0s2 /mnt/edrive doesn't work, either, if I use Primary/Logical/Primary. /dev/ad0s2 does exist. <thinks> I wonder what would happen if I tried to mount ad0s2a? <tests> Neither ad0s2a not ad0s2e succeed :-( Keeps saying "invalid argument" - /dev/ad0s2a and e both exist, so does /mnt/edrive. So I'm stuck. -- Regards, Brian _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
