Did we must put the mounted partition '/' and '/boot' in the
same slice ?

I put '/boot' for an individual partition just for 1023 cylinder
story, although FreeBSD did
not need this action !
the following is my partitions layout, pls help to do some check:
ad0s1d /boot -> 30M
ad0s1a / -> 512M
ad0s1b swap -> 512M
ad0s1e /usr -> 6144M
ad0s1f /var -> 512M
ad0s1g /home -> 2017M
ad0s1h /tmp -> 512M
But after I finished my installation and reboot FreeBSD, it will not
Could you tell me what's the mistakes ? thanks a lot !
