however, it fell appart here. this is the error message i received:
WARNING: R/W mount of / denied. Filesystem is not clean - run fsck
mount: /mnt/ad4s1a: Operation not permitted

the same error appears as before:
mknod: ad4s1a: Read-only file system

i have to say this was extremely helpful. i was able to mount /dev/ad4s1e
however, i'm still stuck. i was hoping i'd be able to create the device
nodes and then change the values under /etc/fstab so that things would
work without any issues. but i'm still having a problem with sorting out
the device nodes.
any other advice on this one?
thanks again for this pretty sweet trick. :)
