Hrm... "-o ufstype=44bsd" should work... I've used it before to mount
FreeBSD disks under Linux... Do you have ufs support available in your
kernel, either compiled in or as a module?  Are you sure the device is
correct? (just throwing out ideas...) Any other information you can
provide would be helpful.
