Are you sure that /dev/ad0s1 is your file system? I'd expect a PATA drive to
show up named /dev/hda or /dev/hdb and partitions named /dev/hda1 etc. Likewise
SATA drives are normally named /dev/sda with partitions named /dev/sda1 etc.

Are you running debian-kfreebsd?

What does dmesg say about the disks? What about 'cfdisk -P s /dev/ad0'?
With a Linux kernel, BSD slices are sd partitions.

I am indeed running debian-kfreeBSD, I guess that is why the devices are called /dev/ad<n> ....
