How can I find that out? Is it the slice order in the disk label editor
from /stand/sysinstall :
Disk: ad1 Partition name: ad1s1 Free: 0 blocks (0MB)
Part Mount Size Newfs
---- ----- ---- -----
ad1s1a <none> 100MB *
ad1s1e <none> 3100MB *
ad1s1f <none> 3100MB *
ad1s1g <none> 3100MB *
ad1s1h <none> 300MB *
ad1s1b <none> 300MB *
ad1s1d <none> 66316MB *
In this table f and g are back-to-front lined up.
Does that mean f physically follows g?

Sorry, but I consider a potential spam risk when using a real address on
this publicly accessible list. The list is my communication medium and I
monitor the list on gmane. I hope you understand.
