I'm confused between the BSD disklabel and DOS/MBR partition map.
What does (running from Linux)
fdisk -lu /dev/sdb (or whatever the Linux name for that disk is) show?
How do you mount that Linux ext3fs partition in Linux? That knowledge might help me figure how to mount that partition from FreeBSD.
I'm still not sure how or if FreeBSD supports ext3fs as opposed to ext2fs.
I don't see the rationale for setting up an extended partition when you only use two partitions. The second (Linux swap) partition could be primary, and you would be well under the quota of four primary partitions.
