It's the partition that I mean, then. : Also, careful of your use of the word mounted. Nothing should : be mounted on /dev/ad0s1g or there would be problems. But : what you want is the partition at /dev/ad0s1g and you want to : mount that on some mount point such as /mnt or maybe /oldusr if : you can make that dir. Oops, that's what I meant. I need to mount /dev/ad0s1g to /mnt or whatever mountpoint I will use. : How sure are you that your old /usr was in partition /dev/ad0s1g? : Is it possible you are looking in the wrong place? That's what I see when I 'cat /mnt/etc/fstab' with my old drive / mounted on /mnt. : I have not had to use the fixit disks so I am not sure of what all : is included, but I would be surprised if there is no MAKEDEV script : if it is for FreeBSD 4.xxx or older version. In 4.xxx and earlier, : the MAKEDEV script is in /dev. You need to cd to /dev and then : run './MAKEDEV ad0'. NOTE, the './' is necessary because MAKEDEV : will not be in your path. I'll look again, but I only saw a few devices listed, and no script. : Try doing : : cd / : mount /dev/ad0s1g /mnt : cd /mnt : ls I'll try tonight, but I think it complains that ad0s1g doesn't exist. jm -- My other computer is your Windows box. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
