hit some FS/slice size limit?

I partitioned my Seagate 500 GB Sata drive  under the FreeBSD 7.1 
sysinstall (booted from the install CD while having the drive attached 
to USB on my notebook). When creating the filesystems I chose 472 G for 
the / partition (wanted to put everything into one partition - yeah, I 
know, one should
granulate this finer, but I didn' t want to bother right now). I got 
told that it could not create the slice
(too big? it said). Hmm, is there some limit on a FreeBSD slice size?
