Just getting it mounted is not the problem. I can mount everything as root, and here is my current fstab:
# Device                Mountpoint      FStype  Options         Dump    Pass#
/dev/ad4s1b             none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/ad4s1a             /               ufs     rw              1       1
/dev/acd0               /cdrom          cd9660  ro,noauto       0       0
/dev/ad0s7              /mnt/storage    msdosfs rw              0       0
/dev/ad0s5              /mnt/ntfs       ntfs    rw              0       0
/dev/ad0s1              /mnt/xp         ntfs    rw              0       0
/dev/ad0s8              /mnt/linux      ext2fs  rw              0       0
/dev/ad0s6              /mnt/extra      reiserfs        ro      0       0
/dev/da1s1              /mnt/mmc        msdosfs,noauto  rw              0       0
After a reboot they are mounted with root privilegies - i.e. no other user than root can write on them. I can write there with a regular user only after remounting these with that user.
And a one more point on ext2/3 partitions - they are mounted with preserved modes of ownership. I.e. if /mnt/linux/home/user1 is owned by user1 on the Linux filesystem (uid 1500 for example), after mount in FreeBSD the file owner is uuid 1500, which I doesn't have on my system. Can I just ignore these ownerships and make one single user owner of the whole mounted filesystem? And how to keep that after a reboot? Man page of mount didn't have a clue about setting uuid of the mount point.
