 The uname for the freebsd 4.9 system:
 abbyBSD-~$ uname -a
 FreeBSD abbyBSD.WORKGROUP 4.9-RELEASE FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE #1: Sun Feb 15 
 17:14:24 MST 2004     
 root at abbyBSD.WORKGROUP:/usr/src/sys/compile/ABBY_EX2  i386
 The ext2fs partitions on the system hard disk will mount read/write.
 abbyBSD-~$ mount
 /dev/ad0s4a on / (ufs, local)
 procfs on /proc (procfs, local)
 /dev/ad0s1 on /suse (ext2fs, local)
 Booting another computer (normally running windowsXP) from the
 freesbie.livecd 5.3-RELEASE-p2 cd, the same Maxor usb disk ext2fs 
 partitions would only mount read only.
 I do not have a second usb disk with a partition formated with ext2fs
