hi all gurus:

for usb external drive, i followed the handbook:

but i have some problems for mounting a portable usb external drive:

1) when i plugged in, /dev/da0s1 appears:

ip@hotty:/var/log:$ ls -al /dev/da0s1
crw-r-----  1 root  operator    0, 108 Feb 26 22:05 /dev/da0s1

but i can't mount it:

hotty# mount -t  mdntfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt/mlu
mount: /dev/da0s1 : Operation not supported by device

2) after i rebooted the system, even the usb external drive is still plugged in, but it disappears from the freebsd system:
ip@hotty:$ ls -al /dev/da0s1
ls: /dev/da0s1: No such file or directory

how could i fix this?

thanks in advance
