Question I can't mount UFS filesystem from Linux

If I use a Linux live CD I can't access FreeBSD on the computer hard disk, I specify mount -t ufs but I still get filesystem not recognised or failed to mount.

How can I mount a FreeBSD system (UFS filesystem) from a Linux live CD?

One possibility is that the live distro has a udf module built but it isn't loaded. There may be a module in "/lib/modules/<version>/kernel/fs/udf/udf.ko".
Look at the output of "lsmod". Is there a ufs module? If not try "sudo /sbin/modprobe udf" and then try mounting it again.
