	You need to do a few small things.
	1) Find out what drive, and partition your MSDOS drive is on.
	2) Find out what /dev entry cooresponds to that partition.
	   for example /dev/sd0s1 is mine (first partition, first drive
	   on a SCSI interface card.
	3) make /dev/????? readable & writable by everyone.
	   i.e. chmod 777 /dev/sd????? (or wd?????)

	4) Then it should mount!!!
	   like this:
		cd /
		mkdir dos
		mount_msdos /dev/????? /dos

	Presto!!!
	Jeff
