how to overcome this problem ?

Use fdisk to make up to 4 slices on the disk; e.g. ad0 gets ad0s1 to ad0s4.
you can then create up to 6 usable partitions on each slice.


if you are on 7.0 and your box is equipped for it (memory) you could - and probably should - give ZFS a try. I use it w/o troubles and it really eliminates the partitioning (and other) hassles. Simply put: it is the next
