Does the driver exist?

grep -i ufs /boot/config-`uname -r`

also grep -i ufs /proc/filesystems

It seems on CentOS 4.6 and 5.1 at least UFS support is not
compiled into the kernel. Red Hat typically is pretty conservative
with the options they use I can't imagine UFS being all that well
tested under linux but I certainly could be wrong. You may be able
to find a 3rd party kernel that has it or build the module(s)

I recall last time I tried UFS(on a debian system) it only
supported read-only access, which was of limited help(was
trying to modify the config of a OpenBSD system that was installed
on a CF card which was hanging on boot).
