I have got some old and small SCSI harddisks left. 1) Can I use vinum to make them look like one big ufs slice (or is it more like a partition, which can be sliced)?
Its like a partition/partitions that you newfs and mount like: mount /dev/vinum/bigdrive /lotofdisks
2) Can I boot from such a thing, or do I need a seperate disk?
This depends which version of FreeBSD you are using. Older versions need some tricks, but there is a doc in /usr/share/doc/en/articles/vinum/ which descibes how to setup this. I am not sure, but 4.9R and/or 5.1R may be able to boot directly via vinum.
man 4 vinum man 8 vinum http://www.vinumvm.org/
3) Is there some fine manual around, that could be used as a starting point for reading? (I had a look at at my copy of "The Complete FreeBSD", but I guess I wouldn't ask these questions, if I had understood it.)
See above, plus FreeBSD handbook
