mounting a drive

Postby davidbeckam » Tue Jun 23, 2009 9:48 am

I have a 250Gb external USB hard drive formatted in fat32 and would like to use it with my FreeBSD desktop system. I understand that because of the size of the partition and the limitations of the default kernel, mounting such a partition requires a flag to mount "large partitions". Mounting in a terminal is working fine, but I would like to know how to allow a file browser to mount this device. Is there a config file where I can add the extra command to mount large drives or will I just have to build a custom kernel?
