When (what version?) was the FreeBSD partition formatted with?
In my experience with getting Linux to mount a FreeBSD partition,
Linux 2.2.x only supported 8 sector clusters, and 2.4.x supports
8 and 32 sector clusters, but neither supported the recent new
default of 16 sectors/cluster used when creating FreeBSD partitions.
I recall an error message to this effect, you may receive it at
some point.

  I'm trying to mount a FreeBsd drive with Linux.  I should be able to do this accrding to the HOW-TOs I've been reading.
  here is a sample of my command:
  mount -t ufs /dev/hda1 /mnt (i've also tried to specify the ufstype as 44bsd)
  I keep getting an error message like " wrong fs type, bad option, abd superblock ...or too many mounted filesystems".  I should add that I'm using a linuxcare BBC.  I know the drive boots to BSD...what am I doing wrong...I just spent the last eight hours of my life-which 'll never get back- tryin gto figure the blasted thing out...
