FreeBSD 2.2.6 doesn't support vfat natively...just use vmount which
does.(Make a search trough FTPSearch and get the 'b' release )

I myself was a Linux user and your partitions should be /dev/wd0s3 and
/dev/wd0s5 . It is simple: hda is first ide disk on Linux and /dev/wd0 is
first ide disk on FreeBSD /dev/hdaX is partition X on that
disk and /dev/wd0sX is slice X on that drive according to FreeBSD.

Hope this helps,
