I have had the same problem: booting CURRENT from an USB key and wanting
to get access to the SSD partitions created with RELENG_7 kernel in the
EeePC. I've found no way to do and labeled the SSD from scratch (had

In your case: boot a RELENG_7 rescue CD, mount the usbdrive and backup
the data (via LAN) to some other place.

People who hate Microsoft Windows use Linux but people who love UNIX use FreeBSD.
