Thanks much for the hint! Unfortunately my data is on a SCSI
disk. Nevertheless I found the solution myself in the meantime:
The reason I couldn't mount the partitions, even after generating
device nodes for them (like ad0s1e,...) was that I didn't do a fsck
first. The solution came to me after I discovered that I could mount
the partitions readonly, but not r/w. So I fsck-ed them, with fsck
fixing some things then I could mount the partitions.
Thanks neverthelss for the hint with atacontrol - I'll keep in in my
records since you never know when disaster strikes again...
