    Linux partitions to BSD


    How do I tell which partitions I'm using?? I have several Linux OS's on my drive and I want to change Xandos to BSD, It's (Xandr) on dev/hdd7(/) and /hdd8(/home) But I couldn't see anything remotely like that when I was trying to install BSD. So how do I equate the linux parts. 7&8 for my BSD install? TIA, Logan

    BSD uses slices and partitions.. partitions are divisions of slices, which are divisions of your disk.. so the first partition of the first hdd in BSD is:
    /dev/ad0s1a <- ad0==first hdd s1==first slice a==first partition

    ad0 is for IDE/ATAPI devices..
