    NetBSD mount


    I cannot mount my floppy disks in NetBSD why ?
    There is no fd0 file in devices ..

    Plus I can't mount my NetBSD on Linux
    I use the flollwing command :

    mount -t osf /dev/hda3 /mnt/bsd

    but it does not run !

    Maybe the floppies aren't called fd* in NetBSD. I don't know just what they're called, though. It probably says in some manpage. This really isn't a BSD forum, though, but never mind.
    Are you sure that you use that file system in the disk? I've never heard of osf. As I know, BSD uses usf, which btw. only is read-only supported in linux for the moment (there is write support, bat it's marked DANGEROUS, so I wouldn't use it).

    Sorry, not usf. That should be ufs.

    Yeah .. I had to write ufs .. me too, I made a mistake

    Well but when I try this, I get such a message :

    [root@localhost root]# mount -t ufs /dev/hda3 /mnt/bsd
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda3,
    or too many mounted file systems
