Yes. Slice 2 is FreeBSD and Slice 3 is the IBM recovery partition. I can't
remember if they're numbered from 1 or 0 though. If they start at 0 then
WinXP would be slice 0, FreeBSD would be slice 1, and the recovery partition
would be slice 2.
I was under the impression that /dev/ad0s1 was a FreeBSD slice. Perhaps I
need to revisit FreeBSD's partition numbering scheme.
I'll check this out and get back to you.

Really? OK. I'll give that a try.
