I just installed Debian Linux on my pc which is sharing space
with Windows95, FreeBSD, and Plan9.

I would like to mount my FreeBSD partition/slice from
linux, but it doesn't seem to want to work entirely.
I can mount root but nothing beyond that. I use the
following to mount it:

        mount -t ufs -o ufstype=44bsd /dev/hda7 /mnt

I presume something is corrupted. What is wrong and can
it be repaired so that I can grab some files off it?
Below is some info... I don't know how to interpret it.


Partition check:
 hda: hda1 hda2 hda3! hda4 < hda5 hda6 > < hda7 hda8 hda9 hda10 >

Disk /dev/hda: 128 heads, 63 sectors, 782 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 8064 * 512 bytes

Damn you.
DO NOT MULTIPOST. (see col.misc)



1. Partitioning blues...

I installed Red Hat Linux on my newly bought 20 GB Hard drive and
installation went fine. But then, I wanted to partition 4GB of this
Hard drive for my windows 98 and so used the Linux cfdisk utility to
create a new 4 GB partition with file type 0C (FAT32) and opted to
write the partition table (isn't that what i was supposed to do?).
Now, when I boot in Windows, it DOES show a new partition (D:\ drive)
on the Windows explorer but when i try to access it, it does not allow
me to do that and fails with message:

"D:\is not accessible; A device attached to the system in not

Any clues about what is going on here?
