How to mount a PCMCIA hard drive

After a hiatus of several years, I installed NetBSD, version 10,
and was delighted that several pain points I had seen in earlier
attempts have been resolved. Keyboard map setting interited also to
X11, and a nice ctwm default desktop setup.
One platform I used was an old Thinkpad T23, 256Mb. Compatibility
appears to be excellent, of course the limited memory rules
out running some progrems. But on to the question:

I have a "Centennial MicroDrive", 340 Mb that does into a PCMCIA card
slot. Inserting it into the T23, I get these dmesg messages

[ 6743.118863] wdc2 at pcmcia1 function 0: <INTEGRAL PERIPHERALS, ATA
CARD> [ 6743.118863] wdc2: i/o mapped mode
[ 6743.618871] atabus2 at wdc2 channel 0
[ 8339.023384] atabus2: detached
[ 8339.023384] wdc2: detached 

the last lines two are from taking it out.
Now I wonder how to mount it. It probably contains a FAT
file system, but I could not figure out what device to use.
Or do I need to create a new /dev entry?
