You probably need a kernel with ufs support.  Apparently there are
several versions so you have to specify a 'usftype=...' paramater to
mount.  See <kernel-source>/Documentation/filesystems/ufs.txt for more
info.  I'm guessing it doesn't come with the prebuilt *.deb kernels, but
you can check /lib/modules/<kernel_version/fs -- presumably a module
would be named ufs.o . If it's built into the kernel (doubtful) you can
also look at /proc/filesystems.
