Works great for me ... I do it every day :-)
It's relatively simple:
1) use the NetBSD fdisk to find the block offset and size of your MS-DOS
2) "disklabel -e sd0/wd0/whatever", and add a new Unix partition with the
above offset and size. One tip: Be sure to change the "n partitions"
line to reflect the new total number of partitions that you have, else
you get a confusing error message.
3) mount -t msdos /dev/sd0f, or whatever.
