First I guess you actually mean partition, not slice.
(Partitions are usually labeled a, d, e, ..., while slices
are normally numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 and are the same as what is called
a partition in DOS/Windows.)
You should be able to create a 'b' partition in addition to those you have
(assuming there exists free space on the disk of course.)
Partition 'b' is usually used for swap, but I don't there is any fundamental
reason why it could not be used for a normal file system.
