Mounting FreeBSD partitions inside fstab

Hi All,

I just moved a file server from FreeBSD 5.2 to Slackware 9.1. The data drive has been formatted with 4.4 BSD file system and has 40 GB of data on it. I need to mount the 4 BSD partitions (hda's 1, 2, 3 and 4). I can do it manually or with a script by typing

mount -t ufs -o ufstype=44bsd /dev/hda1 /usr1

but I can't get it to work from putting entries into fstab. Can anyone tell me what the equivalent fstab entry would be? I can keep using a script, but I'd rather use fstab.

Thanks in advance,

Try this...
Example mount directory...
mkdir /mnt/bsd
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/bsd -t ufs

Then the /etc/fstab entry might look like this...

/dev/hda1 /mnt/bsd ufs gid=500,umask=002 0 0
