Default Mount USB Problems

Hi. I've mounted USB sticks under Linux, but having some trouble under OpenBSD:

When I plug it in, dmesg gives me:

umass0 at uhub0 port 5 configuration 1 interface 0 " USB Flash Memory" rev 2.00/1.00 addr 2
umass0: using SCSI over Bulk-Only
scsibus3 at umass0: 2 targets, initiator 0
sd2 at scsibus3 targ 1 lun 0: <, USB Flash Memory, PMAP> SCSI0 0/direct removable
sd2: 3822MB, 512 bytes/sec, 7827456 sec total
Then I took a stab at it:

# mkdir /mnt/usb
# mount /dev/sd2a /mnt/usb
mount_ffs: /dev/sd2a on /mnt/usb: Device not configured
# mount -t vfat /dev/sd2a /mnt/usb 
mount: no mount helper program found for vfat: No such file or directory
# mount -t msdos /dev/sd2a /mnt/usb
mount_msdos: /dev/sd2a on /mnt/usb: Device not configured
Thanks in advance for your patience.

The device that you want is probably /dev/sd2i - the "i" slice seems to be where FAT volumes are found.

While it's true that "i" is usually the slice where FAT/MSDOS partitions fall, you can find out for sure by doing something like this:
# disklabel sd0 
# /dev/rsd0c:
type: SCSI
disk: SCSI disk
label: U3 Cruzer Micro 
duid: be87cc821c90eada
bytes/sector: 512
sectors/track: 63
tracks/cylinder: 255
sectors/cylinder: 16065
cylinders: 498
total sectors: 8015505
boundstart: 0
boundend: 8015505
drivedata: 0 

16 partitions:
#                size           offset  fstype [fsize bsize  cpg]
  c:          8015505                0  unused                   
  i:          8000306               64   MSDOS
