I'm trying to install FreeBSD as part of a dual boot config on a hard

FreeBSD. I get the following message, after which installation aborts:
"Unable to find device node for /dev/ad4s2b in /dev! The creation of
filesystems will be aborted." What am I doing wrong?

Are you trying to install FreeBSD in an extended partition? The /dev/ad*4*s2b makes me think so ...

If yes, that won't work. You have to install FreeBSD in a primary partition.
