Mounting ext3fs partition

Hi all,

I'm running FreeBSD 7.1-BETA2. I have several partitions/filesystems
in my computer and I would like to have full access to all of them.

I've mounted the NTFS partition without problems (though it is
read-only, it's enough for me)

I've compiled the kernel with the EXT2FS option. I can mount the partition with:

mount -t ext2fs /dev/ad4s1 /mnt/linux

note: the partition is actually a ext3fs...

But if I enter the mount point and do "ls", I get:

ls: /mnt/linux: Bad file descriptor

What am I doing wrong?
