System: NetBSD miyu 1.6ZC NetBSD 1.6ZC (MIYU) #25: Sat Oct 11 17:15:37 MEST 2003 feyrer@miyu:/home/cvs/src-current/sys/arch/i386/compile/MIYU i386

	The mount.2 manpage is incomplete. While it mentions all possible
	error codes that can arise when mounting nfs, nfs and mfs, it
	doesn't tell about msdosfs (and many other filesystem types).

	Try to mount a msdos filesystem and get:

		miyu# mount_msdos /dev/wd2e /mnt
		mount_msdos: /dev/wd2e on /mnt: Device busy

	Make sure that /mnt exists and /dev/wd2e is not mounted elsewhere,
	and start wonderting what's going on.

	Read through lots of kernel code and find out. 
	I'm just calling it a day for now. :(
