Hi guys,
I have a 40gb harddisk with 2 windows(fat32) partitions and 1 fbsd partition.
I am using fbsd 5.2.1(with devfs). 
/dev/ad0 tells me the first partition on my harddisk is a windows fat32
partition (as it should be). When i try to mount it with:

"mount -t msdos /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win_c" or 
"mount -t msdosfs /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win_c" or 
"mount_msdosfs /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win_c" 

I get the error: 

msdosfs: /dev/ad0s1: Invalid argument

I tried a script from freesbie that tries to mount all mountable devices.
It identifies ad0s1 as windows partition and tries to mount it but also fails - the 
error the script gets i don`t know, but i assume it is the same
one. I don`t have a /dev/ad0s1e. 

Now the real weird and annoying thing:
i can mount the extended windows partition(/dev/ad0s5) with:

mount -t msdosfs /dev/ad0s5 /mnt/win_d 

without any erros.
I don`t know why but hopefully some of you guys know ;).
