You probably should try and figure out how the drive was sliced and/or 
partitioned. The old style MBR and disklabel, or the newer GPT scheme(s). 
Try and see if these commands return any useful info:

gpart status

gpart show

gpart list

The /dev/whatever node which represents the drive and partitions will either 
look something like ada1p2 if partitioned as GPT, or the old ada1s1a format 
if MBR. Figure this out, use the correct item for the manual mount command 
to test. If it mounts successfully then adjust the fstab to match.
