access extended partition

Hi Konstantin:

The line you are suggesting is for a first slice in the master
hard disk in the second controller, I only have 1 disk.

If you are familiar with MS, the slice are called partition in
MS, but only 1 primary partition can exist in windows, so the
rest of the disk has to be assigned to a extended partition, and
inside this extended partition, you can create logical units
(like partitions in FreeBSD).

In my case, the entire extended partition is used by D:

you need add following line in /etc/fstab

/dev/ad2s1       /mountpoint       msdos   rw,noauto       0       0
