The slice isn't your problem. You simply need to mount the filesystem wile specifying the correct type. To mount an EXT3 filesystem on BSD, use mount -t ext2fs (this also mounts ext3 which is really ext2 plus journalling). To mount a UFS filesystem on Linux, use mount -t ufs. I'm not sure if Linux supports UFS2 yet, this may only work on UFS1. Also, depending upon your distro, UFS support may or may not be compiled into the kernel.
