    I'm trying to mount an ntfs-3g partition but get an error when using 

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/ad6s1 /win
mount: /dev/ad6s1 : Operation not supported by device

if i use mount_ntfs-3g ... it works fine but that won't help me with 
respect to mounting during boot.

Is there anything special that needs to be done to get a non standard 
mount_* command to work via mount? I read somewhere to add a symlink to 
mount_ntfs-3g to /sbin/ but that did not seem to do anything.
