Default how to mount ext3

I have an externl hdd formatted entirely in ext3 with no partitions.

I do 'mount -t ext3 /dev/da0 /mount5'
And it says operation not supported by device
I also tried ext2

You'll need to use -t ext2, but you'll also need to specify the slice.. FreeBSD uses a dynamic device file system, so do a $ ls /dev/da0* and see what shows up.

EDIT: No partitions? not sure why you did that for.. can't help you with that.. or if FreeBSD can mount it.

I use

mount -t ext2fs /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/linux
on FreeBSD 8 beta. Didn't work on 7.2 because of inode size change in Linux.
