- ad0s1 : first partition on IDE Primary Master
- slice is NOT the thing that is mounted.
- A partition is part of an fdisk partition with no corresponding entity in fdisk terms. Partitions are named from a to h and managed with Disklabel Editor.
- ad0s1a : partition a on ad0s1
- partition carries filesystem, hence formatted and mounted.
- Newfs is format or mkfs
- T = Toggle Newfs → format the partition or not
- SoftUpdates is journalling (or the closest thing to it).
