I'm having a problem mounting dos files from the windows drive.  I've tried every kind of mount command (mount_msdos, mount, etc) and every kind of option or options.  I even included /mnt in the command.  Nothing works.  I am not using anything in the fstab file for this mount. 5 years ago, it was working perfectly on my computer.  My only mistake, I did not write it down in my FreeBSD note files.

The file I'm trying to mount is ad0s1 (windows 98).  FreeBSD is mounted on ad0s2.
I have read all the MOUNT man pages.  Maybe a little too complex for me.  Please tell me the one line command.
