The openbsd web, especially the amiga page?

Adosfs is read-only, since noone has written code that could write
amigados-filesystems reliably enough to not destroy amiga-OFS/FFS. Yet.
It will work if you mount it with the "-o ro" option.
It would also be helpful if you could quote whatever error message goes
with that particurlar command.

As far as the compatibility list on www.openbsd.org/amiga.html goes,
there is no such support.
An output of "dmesg" would be nice though.
