Hi D. Olson!
This is just a simple tip, not a complete solution.
First, take a look in the /dev directory to see if there have been any symlinks created to the /dev/pd/disc0/part1 device file. It can be that it is not called /dev/pda1.
Second, if there was no symlink in /dev, you might want to have a look at the devfsd configuration. It looks as if you are running the devfs system to maintain device files in /dev.
You can have the devfsd daemon create symlinks in /dev for various devices that is detected on the system.
man devfsd.conf can be a start
Med vänlig hälsning / Best regards
