    Question Mounting a BSD partition

    I am using a Debian based live CD (GRML), and I trying to mount my main OS in the hard disk, FreeBSD 5.5, but everytime I try to do:

    mount -t * /dev/sda /mnt/bsd

    I get that the filesystem could not be recognised or somehing. NOTICE that where the * is it means I have tried ALL the filesystems I can think of.

    The BSD hard disk is formatted as a UFS filesystem so obviously I have tried this one too. Is there a way of mounting a BSD system with Linux? What filesystem type should I use?

    Does GRML support the BSD UFS file system?

    Thats a good question to which I have no answer yet, I basically assumed that because GRML is based on Debian, then if Debian supports UFS any Debian based system would.

    Regarding this yes I am sure that is the device name because when I had Linux installed there I had no problems mounting it with -t reiserfs, then I deleted Mandriva and installed FreeBSD, but the device name is still the same when mounting from a Linux based distro (GRML), the HD is a sata device.
