Default Mounting an FS with no MBR/disklabel

Yesterday a coworker (Yes, it really was a coworker) reinstalled Windows for a customer without making a backup resulting in the complete loss of that company's complete administration.

One of the things I did/tried for recovery was running photorec, and stored the recovered stuff on a new hard disk.
I was in something of a hurry and just did newfs /dev/ad6, I didn't make a MBR or disklabel.

I can't seem to mount the filesystem now mount says ad6: Invalid argument. Maybe I am missing something very obvious ...

According to a recent post in http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/f...er/209112.html it should be possible.

Does disk/bsdlabel spoof a 'c' partition for ad6? Or have I been too long in OpenBSD land

I just did the same thing earlier this week. I can mount the disk as either

Code:
mount /dev/da1 /1
Code:
mount /dev/da1s1 /1
i'm running FreeBSD 8, but I'm sure I did such things in 7.
