Can't mount ad0s2 - sourced

I asked a question about my inability to mount /dev/ad02.
The drive is partitioned DOS-DOS-FBSD.

If I set up the partitions Primary1-Primary2-Primary3, WinNT "hides" 
Primary2, and I have to "unhide" using Partition Magic every time I 
boot into that hateful OS.  However, I CAN acess Primary2 from FBSD.

If I set up the partitions Primary1-Logical1-Primary2, WinNT is happy, 
but Logical1 cannot be mounted by FBSD. 

Looks like there is no way round the DOS/BIOS limitation.  :-(
