DragonFly can see my hard-disk partitions but can't mount any, for whatever 

Also, DragonFly gives me no Internet access on my hardware.

DragonFly file systems seem to be unmountable/unreadable from FreeBSD and 

Accessing GPT partitions is easier in Linux and even better in FreeBSD.  
Partitions can be labeled, nothing sneaky about partition/wedge numbering, and 
device nodes are created dynamically instead of having to be preallocated.
