Question 2 fat32 partitions on fbsd5/w2k dual. Can only access one fat32 so far..

Been running freebsd for about 2 weeks, checked the handbook, havent found an answer yet.

Here is how my HD is setup right now:

1st partition- Win2k
2nd partiton- FBSD
3rd partition- FAT32 storage space (music, photoshop projects, websites, etc)

all of which are about 20 gig a piece.

I can mount the 1st Win2k partition without any problems with..
mount -t msdos /dev/ad0s1 /windows

problem is that I dont know how to access that 3rd partition of storage space with all my files n docs n such.
i know the first partition is read as /dev/ad0s1, but dont know what that 3rd partition would be called.
Got any pointers for mounting that 3rd partition?
Thanks in advance!
fyi: my fstab file hasnt been touched since the installation so you have an idea of how it is configured.

Thanks again

fdisk -l /dev/ad0 should show you the available slices methinks.
