My old Sun3/60 running SunOS 4.1.1_U3 died on me.  :-(  In older to retrieve
my important files from it, I connected my ShoeBox (Sun SCSI disk enclosure)
to an i386 PC running NetBSD 1.3, with an Adaptec card.  Unfortunately, the
old SunOS filesystem doesn't appear to be compatible with "ffs", or any of
the other filesystems, so I can't seem to mount it.

Does any know how to mount an old SunOS disk under NetBSD 1.3 i386,
hopefully in such a way so that I don't tamper with anything on the disk?
(No modifications of disklabel, mounting only as read-only, etc.)  BTW,
NetBSD sees the disk as "sd0", but claims there is no disklabel.

Thanks in advance, Alicia.
