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.

HTH.
