Thanks all. I have XP and linux share the xtended partition, and
now I want to say bye bye linux (I need XP for worldwind s/w) .
Ido not see the extended logical drives containing ext3 from
sysinstall that is the problem.
The cmdline freebsd fdisk feels like a throw back tp the pdp-11 days :)
So I'm going to try and mount them from bsd below my home
folder, without deleting them first... until I work out exactly how
to use the fbsd fdiks cmdline without damaging anything.
Thanks once again!

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.

Should be no problem.

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...
