No, first of all you create the Slice for FreeBSD (called normally Partition in other systems) And then inside of the Slice you create the "Partitions" you want.

So it's possible to have extended partitions only it's called different?

No. For one thing, FBSD only allows 8 filesystems within the primary partition it uses, whereas I think an extended partition allows something like 63.

For another, it's only possible to have one extended partition per drive afaik, whereas you can have multiple BSD partitions per drive - that is, a freebsd, an openbsd, and a netbsd partition, or two freebsd's and one netbsd, etc.

Thirdly, all OS's on the drive report a *BSD partition as either a BSD primary partition or an unknown partition, not as an extended one.
