I'm hoping someone here may be able to help me out. I installed FreeBSD 4.1.1 a couple of days ago and have the following problem... I can't mount zip disks (dos or ext2) on my zip 100 SCSI drive. I've recompiled the kernel with ext2 support and can mount my linux HD no problem, but when I try to mount a dos zip using
mount -t msdos /dev/da0s4 /zip
I get "Invalid argument".
The drive is recognized at boot, comes up as da0, and I've spent the last two hours reading usenet archives trying to find an answer. I found other people with the same problem, but no answers.
I did format a zip and create a UFS filesystem on it, which mounted fine. Do I need to add something to my kernel configuration? I've tried /dev/da0s1 ,s2, s3, as well as da0a ,b, c, etc. to no avail.
I would be grateful for any help on this
