I thought I had got the hang of these things ages ago but was mistaken.
I have a windows installation on ad0s1 (which mounts fine), a BSD root on ad0s2a (,
swap on ad0s2b) and two more fat32 partitions in which are definately in the third and
What would the device name be these last ones ?
I thought they would be ad0s3# where # is a letter, maybe g or h. But it isn't any ad0s3#
and I've been pissing in the wind trying to find out. I had MAKEDEVed ad0s3 a-h.
disklabel won't confirm the existance of any more than a,b,c in ad0s2.
This is incredibly frustrating. There's nothing in the handbook about getting at partitions
one _knows_ to exist which aren't right at the front.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
