This is a question I have on FreeBSD disklabels. I had originally posted
it to the `freebsd-questions' list, but for soem reason it kept bouncing
back (and even the owners didn't help out on writing ...).
I have an extended partition, and that has logical drives in it (which has
my Linux partition). I can access those from NetBSD (or atleast I think I
know how to), but FreeBSD seems to have a different way of using
disklabels. Would anybody on this list who might have freebsd experience
please help me out. Please.
And while I am on it, why is it that I can have only 8 partitions (a-h) ?
Is there any way to increase it. `a' is root, `b' is swap, `c,'`d' are
reserved, and `e,'`f' have /usr and /var on them -- leaving me with just
`g' and `h.' Anyways to increase the number ?
