About FFS / UFS (BSD)

Not to be confused with the Amiga FFS, the BSD FFS / UFS is commonly used on hard disks for the *BSD and derivatives. What is usually called a "partition" is called a "slice" in *BSD, which is in turn subdivided into "partitions" - a naming pattern that leads to some confusion, and to rather cryptic device names (ad0s1c for the third partition on the second slice on the primary master ATAPI hard drive...).
