Default Unable to mount second hard drive

I'm new to BSD and am trying to mount a secondary hard drive, but all the commands that I am familiar with do not work.

Here is a paste of my terminal:

Code:
# disklabel wd1
# /dev/rwd1c:
type: ESDI
disk: ESDI/IDE disk
label: ST380021A       
flags:

# mount -t ext2fs /dev/rwd1 /mnt 
mount_ext2fs: /dev/rwd1 on /mnt: No such file or directory
What am I missing here? Probably something simple, but it has been a long night getting everything up and running and my mind is beginning to slip. Any insight into this matter would be greatly appreciated.

I can mount an ext2fs filesystem from an 'old' Ubuntu without problem.

Code:
# fdisk wd0

Disk: wd0       geometry: 38913/255/63 [625142448 Sectors]
Offset: 0       Signature: 0xAA55
            Starting         Ending         LBA Info:

# disklabel wd0

  p:        255449565        369687780  ext2fs
A mount of the raw device fails:

Code:
# mount -t ext2fs -o ro /dev/rwd0p /mnt
mount_ext2fs: /dev/rwd0p on /mnt: Block device required
Using the 'normal' device succeeds:

Code:
# mount -t ext2fs -o ro /dev/wd0p /mnt 
ls -l /mnt

Are you sure you are using ext2fs or ext3fs?
ext3fs is compatible with ext2fs, but I am not sure ext4fs is

Code:
# mount -t ext2fs /dev/wd1i /mnt
mount_ext2fs: /dev/wd1i on /mnt: Block device required
Yeah, that output looks odd.. /dev/wd1i should work, that is the appropriate block device, so either you typed that wrong or you trashed your /dev.

Use the /dev/MAKEDEV shell script to regenerate them.

Default Update

First of all I would like to thank you both for the replies. After some much needed rest I tackled the problem again.

I tried to do a "ls -la" inside of /dev and something interesting came up.

While all of the other devices seemed to follow a numbered pattern, followed by the date and then the device. The device wd1i completely breaks all of those patterns with a very long string of seemingly random numbers (probably the cylinder count) and the date set for the device was sometime back in July of 1963. After I typed in "date" I realized that my system time was set for Sept 1987.

I changed the date to the current and now all the devices are showing to be updated with the current date AND I am now about to mount wd1i as normal.

Thank you for the info about MAKEDEV, this is not something that I am familiar with and I will have to put it on my growing list of man pages that I will eventually get around to reading.

One last thing, how do I mark this [Solved]?
