Is it possible to have multiple freebsd slices (partitions) on a
Sure. You'd be mounting filesystems from /dev/ad0s2 rather than
ad0s1, for example, depending on your hard drive position in the ATA
chain and which FDISK partitions you've used.
For example, I already got a fbsd slice with
partitions in it, now I want to add another and use that space,
after deleting a windoze partition.
Should be no problem.
What about using an extended logical partition as a freebsd
IMHO, logical partitions are pure evil which was invented to work
around the 4-partition FDISK limit, and are nearly useless to
anything which creates its own slices or subpartitions within an
FDISK partition the way BSD or Linux can.
YMMV, but I would convert the extended partition into a normal one
and use it directly within FreeBSD, as I do not believe you can boot
from extended partitions...
