If you just plan on backing up some files you can skip the chroot part.
Go ahead and mount ad0s1a -> /mnt
Then you may need to mount "/usr" as well, so try:
mount /dev/ad0s1d /mnt/usr
Then if you cd to /mnt/usr you should see "Programs" and "home" and the
various other stuff in the old /usr partition.
(If you don't see those files, try mounting ad0s1e or ad0s1f, since it
may depend upon how the original disk was setup)
