SubjectUFS filesystem and NeXT CD-ROM

I have a NeXT CD-ROM with NeXTSTEP 3.x for motorola distribution
in. It is not ISO-9660 standard, the data should be written in
NeXT filesystem format. This is useful because it is directly
bootable whith a NeXTstation turbo without the need of an external
boot floppy but makes it unreadable without a NeXT :(.

I've tried to read it under linux making:

mount -t ufs -o ro /dev/hdb /mnt

but I get this error:

ufs_read_super: bad magic number 0x00000000 on dev 0/0

Is that magic number reliable (so I can forget to read the
cd under linux :() or there's another problem ? Dev 0/0 is strange,
it should be the major and minor of the device, right ?

With iso9660 cd-roms I have no problems, the drive is
ide/atapi, accessible with /dev/hdb:
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 3, 64 Jul 18 1994 /dev/hdb

Thank you for any suggestions.
