Disklabel, partition d is usable or not ?

This may sound as a dumb question, but during my 6.2-RELEASE (i386) 
setup I notice the following in the handbook :
 > Remember [...] that partitions b, c, and d have conventional meanings 
that you should adhere to.

But the partition d is used by sysinstall (with both automatic defaults 
and manual setup), maybe this entry should be fixed if d has no more 
special meaning ?

Please note that this is the first time I use FreeBSD and this 
mailing-list :-)
