In most cases, you set up one slice covering the whole disk, and then partition it, giving functional parts an own partition, such as /, /var, /tmp, /usr (including or intendedly excluding /usr/local) and /home. Those are partitions, not slices. As far as I know, there's no advantage in adding additional slices to that concept. A slice is a "DOS primary partition", while a partition is just a subdivision (i. e. an own file system) inside a slice. -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
