Hi all,
i have to mount a Solaris HD on my FBSD 6.2 machine in order
to extract some data. It is recognized at boot time as

ad1: 76319MB <SAMSUNG SP0842N BH100-35> at ata0-slave UDMA66

I tried 

mount -t ext2fs  /dev/ad1  /mnt

and got the answer:

mount_ext2fs: /dev/ad1: Invalid argument

The only device for the disk is /dev/ad1, there are no other /dev/ad1* files.
What else can i try here?
I think i have to specify the partition i want to mount, but how?

Thanks in advance ...
