When I try to mount the disk I get the following error "mount: disk2: unknown special file or file system". What makes things even more strange is that I can mount the slice just fine when I issue mount_msdosfs from the command prompt. Does anyone have any ideas?
I believe that fstab wants 'msdos' and not 'msdosfs'.
