When I use
there's no refernece to the sda6 partition at all. The list reads:
adb fb kmem misc pts scsi urandom
cdroms full kmsg null random shm vc
console ide log port rd tts vvc
discs input mem ptmx root tty zero
In my attempts to mount the disk I managed to mess things up. Therefore, I
reformated with 3 partitions, one of which I formatted as MSDOS FAT32 (which
MacOS sould see) hoping to use that as an 'exchange partition' (as per 3.6.1
MacOS/OSX Partitioning of the manual
can't find that one either.
Looking in 'disks' or 'scsi' I find paths to various 'part1, part2, etc' of
the disk but have no success in mounting one. Maybe I'm not doing that
right? What command do I enter?

Sorry friend, how do I check if the modules are loaded. If not, how can I
load them? Do I have to use something like ctrl,alt F3,4,5 or 6?
Thanks for your patience,
