You might try a mount -f /dev/ad1s1e /mnt

That forces the mount no matter what... But it doesn't mean it will work.

I worry about my child and the Internet all the time, even though she's
too young to have logged on yet. Here's what I worry about. I worry

Unix IS user friendly... It's just selective about who its friends are.
System Administration - It's a dirty job, but somebody said I had to do it.
If you receive something that says 'Send this to everyone you know,
pretend you don't know me.
