Thanks to everyone for the help, especially Casper Dik.

I found the drive in /dev/dsk
I also found fsck in /usr/sbin/

I tried to run "fsck -m c0t0d0s0" in /dev/dsk, but it said
"fsck: error, fsck not applicable for FSType nfs"

so I ran "fsck /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0" and the drive was fixed
and is now back up and running.

Is it a Disksuite volume or an ordinary filesystem?

It should be listed under /dev/dsk?

>Once I find it, how can I mount it?

There's no need; fsck should be run before it is

fsck is /usr/sbin/fsck and should be in $PATH when you
boot from CD.
