Mount ntfs partition in FreeBSD

I tried this first using /etc/fstab with this line

/dev/da0s5   /media/music   ntfs   defaults   0   0

but this didn't work saying the fs was unknown

Then, as a CLI I tried

mount -t ntfs /dev/da0s5   /media/music

and this worked fine.

However, the umount didn't. Have to investigate this.

Edit: 1/04/08

When I put this line in /etc/fstab, it mounted perfectly. So just changing "defaults" to "ro" made a huge difference.

/dev/da0s5   /media/music   ntfs   ro   0   0
