According to the Handbook:
Slice numbers follow the device name, prefixed with an s, starting at 1.
So ``da0s1'' is the first slice on the first SCSI drive. There can only be
four physical slices on a disk, but you can have logical slices inside
physical slices of the appropriate type. These extended slices are
numbered starting at 5, so ``ad0s5'' is the first extended slice on the
first IDE disk. These devices are used by file systems that expect to
occupy a slice.
