That's the problem: these do not show up in FreeBSD. And disklabel says "No valid disklabel found". But I can still boot into NetBSD and from there everything works just fine. > Hey, wait a moment, if you want to switch to NetBSD, why are you trying to > move stuff from NetBSD's /home to your FreeBSD-disklabel (/home as well, I > suppose)?

It should be the other way around indeed: I want to switch to FreeBSD. > In case you are really desperate, Linux reads disklabels from both Free- > and NetBSD just fine; unless you use UFS2 with FreeBSD, that is (if you do, > prepare for lots of funny read-errors...).

Maybe I can format a zip-disk and copy things that way...
