Depending on he partitioning of the USB media,
it's possible to access /dev/da0s1 instead of
/dev/da0. The command

	# fdisk da0

lists the partitioning information. According
to the example above, you can

	# mount -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt/usb

There is a section in the FreeBSD Handbook
discussing the topic of how to access MS-DOS
formatted media per USB.
