Mount UFS HD In Linux

Alright. I never thought this would have turned out to be such a nightmare but it sure has, and any help is greatly appreciated.

My previous server ran Freebsd and have a secondary master mounted to it as /stor specifically for backing data up to. I disconnected the drive and then wiped the primary master clean and did an install of Redhat Enterprise AS. Now, I tried to mount my hard disk in linux. Said UFS wasnt a supported file system. So I loaded the ufs module and tried to mount the drive again. Everytime I try and mount it, I get this:

[root@geckobox jason]# mount -t ufs /dev/hdc1 /stor
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc1,
or too many mounted file systems

I've tried numerous other mount commands including:

mount -t ufs -o ufstype=old /dev/hdc1 /stor
mount -t ufs -o ufstype=44bsd /dev/hdc1 /stor

Same error everytime. When I do a fdisk -l it shows:

[root@geckobox jason]# /sbin/fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hdc: 60.0 GB, 60040544256 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7299 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdc1 * 1 7299 58629186 a5 FreeBSD

Disk /dev/hda: 40.0 GB, 40020664320 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4865 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 14 4670 37407352+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 4671 4865 1566337+ 82 Linux swap

I've been trying for over two days now to get this drive mounted! I just want the data off of it! *sigh*

Im clueless at this point. --ANY-- help greatly appreciated.

*bump* Anyone?

Does it look like its an OS related issue or the disk is damaged?

First of all, don't double post, I replied to your original thread asking about UFS here:

Secondly, don't bump your thread until at least 24 hours has passed by, all of this is in our rules you agreed to when regsitering and you when you clicked "OK" that you agreed to those rules and terms.
