Thank you to the two people who responded to my original message.  With
their help, I have progressed to the point of specifying the slice into

computer, plus one extended slice.  The three primary slices all end within
the 1024 cylinder limit.  The two primary slices that do not contain
FreeBSD are reserved for the installation of other operating systems.  I
wish to place the swap slice/partition in the extended slice.  The fdisk
program supplied with FreeBSD  sees all of the extended slice as one slice,
and does not seem to be able to see the logical slices within it.  Most of
my 15 gb. drive is in the extended slice.  Does anyone know how to solve
this problem?  All suggestions are appreciated.  Yours truly, Lee
