I choose to use the entire disk during freebsd install. Ok, that creates 1 really large slice correct? Now within this slice how may partitions cam there be? I tried setting up /root /tmp /home /var /usr /sandbox/ /private /storage ..... after adding sandbox and attempting to add /private and /storage i saw that the partitions looked different in the freebsd disk setup tool. I continued anyway but upon the system setting up the previous entries and formatting them i received messages that /private and /storate were not mountable or something like that...anyway i had to start over and only add six partitions..well other that the swap. Should i setup 2 slices? here is my current setup with the six partitions.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/ad0s1a 290M 274M -7.3M 103% /
devfs 1.0K 1.0K 0B 100% /dev
/dev/ad0s1f 965M 2.0K 888M 0% /home
/dev/ad0s1g 965M 2.0K 888M 0% /private
/dev/ad0s1e 484M 12K 445M 0% /tmp
/dev/ad0s1h 33G 1.7G 29G 6% /usr
/dev/ad0s1d 145M 9.7M 124M 7% /var
Thanks in ./adv for all the help. I would also like to take the time to thank the freebsd team and others whom contribute and make freebsd what it is. I have used openbsd for several yrs now...firewalls, routers, IDS etc.. but have remained reliant on windows for a desktop but i am proud to say that i have deleted that virus off desktop and am replacing it with feebsd, much successfully i might add. I tip my hat to you fine folks, God bless.
