I have not been able to successfully mount a ufs partition. I've been
pouring through as much info as I can dig up on this. The most
revealing info I find points to a broken ufs module. Is that the
case? To be honest, this is the first time I've had to mount a
FreeBSD UFS partition and this could all be user error.

Specifically, I've done this:

# mount -t ufs -o ufstype=44bsd /dev/hdc7 /mnt/ufs/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc7,
       or too many mounted file systems

This does load the ufs module (as confirmed by lsmod).

fdisk shows:

Command (m for help): p

Disk /dev/hdc: 16 heads, 63 sectors, 39704 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 bytes

8 partitions:
# start end size fstype [fsize bsize cpg]
  a: 1 7* 6* 4.2BSD 1024 8192 16
  b: 7* 72* 65* swap
  c: 1 2492* 2491* unused 0 0
  e: 72* 75* 2* 4.2BSD 1024 8192 16
  f: 75* 2492* 2416* 4.2BSD 1024 8192 16

Any help would be appreciated.
