Is there any way to check the kernel parameters (for the running kernel)? That may reveal if msdos fs is supported.

	You need a partition letter. I.E. mount_msdos /dev/rz2c /mnt
Do a disklabel rz2 and see if it says what partition letter you should use.

	I believe this translates to "NetBSD pmax does not support mounting MSDOS file
systems", but I could be wrong. I've never been able to do it myself.
