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 
So I'm stuck.
