I don't think there's any automatic way to add it to fstab, but you
can certainly mount it from the command line and use that to create
the fstab entry by hand.
mount /dev/ad2s1 /path/to/mount/point
should mount it, then you can umount it and add
/dev/ad2s1 /path/to/mount/point ufs rw 0 0
to your fstab.
