disklabel -e allowed me to change the MSDOS entry to NTFS (verified with
disklabel -r wd0); however, I still can't mount it. I tried
mount -t nfs -o ro /dev/wd0f /c_drive
and got back an error which was "operation not supported by device" or
something like that. I can reboot to NetBSD and get the exact error
message if it would help some kind soul in debugging this problem.
