Which type of partition table does it live in? In FreeBSD, did you
create a BSD/Sun-style disklabel, or a DOS-type partition table?
FreeBSD can do either one. Fortunately, Linux's /sbin/fdisk can deal
with either one, but you should be aware of which mode you should used,
In any event, be careful: The BSD UFS/FFS filesystem has so many
marginally compatible variants that it's difficult to say which ones
Linux can safely mount. I haven't personally tried that in many years.
