Would a change of permissions on the drive help, along with the appropriate entry in /etc/fstab and an addition to group wheel? Here is what I remember doing: 1) created the entry in /etc/fstab to mount the drive at boot, something like: /dev/ad1s1c /msdos ufs rw 2 2 NB: I had to create the /msdos directory, of course. I didn't want to use /mnt, for some reason. But you could use /mnt, if you wish. 2) changed perms on the mount point to 77x, which was owned by root:wheel 3) put me in group wheel I think this is what I did, and was all that was needed, and I could modify the contents at will. Unfortunately, it was some time ago that I did this, so it's possible I left something out.
