I found an answer. Just to let you know, even using an ubuntu live CD, might just not do it. I have used: # sudo modprobe ufs # mkdir ~/ufs_mount # sudo mount -r -t ufs -o ufstype=ufs2 /dev/sdb1 /home//ufs_mount as home directory name. Sdb1 the drive desired to get into.

Sep 24, 2011 - I have a old pc running a p3 that cannot boot OS. So i booted live cd and now i can mount hard drive to back up any files. I have been to /dev and listed. 5 Cups of Ubuntu. Err msg - you must specify the filesystem type.
However you cannot write into a file in there. Using -wr instead of -r wont work, you will get an error instead. Now using the live installation disk (or usb) of freeBSD system, will work as follows: after getting into the live CD make the following # gpart show -l you will see many slices, you will recognize the disk of the form adaN, N integer with slices of their indicated volumes, by going to /dev do -ls you will see names of slices, in my case among them was: ada0p2 which is the drive i need to get into., go to /tmp makdir there, name it ufs_mount.
Elsewhere mkdir won't work because you are in live CD and most of the folders are read only. After that: mount -wr -t ufs /dev/ada0p2 /tmp/ufs_mount ada0p2 is the name of the drive in my case. Use Vi to edit your file, use cat to verify it and you are done.
