as subject, how can i create a ntfs slice ?
i tryed with fdisk and sysid 0x7, 0x86, or 0x87 and after disklabel
/dev/ad0s3. But it doesnt mount.

# mount_ntfs /dev/ad0s3 /mnt/
mount_ntfs: /dev/ad0s3: Invalid argument

and..

The data for partition 3 is:
sysid 134,(unknown)
    start 13301820, size 6329610 (3090 Meg), flag 0
        beg: cyl 828/ head 0/ sector 1;
        end: cyl 1023/ head 254/ sector 63
The data for partition 4 is:
<UNUSED>

and ...

s# disklabel -r ad0s3
# /dev/ad0s3:
type: unknown
disk: amnesiac
label:
flags:
bytes/sector: 512
sectors/track: 63
tracks/cylinder: 255
sectors/cylinder: 16065
cylinders: 394
sectors/unit: 6329610
rpm: 3600
interleave: 1
trackskew: 0
cylinderskew: 0
headswitch: 0           # milliseconds
track-to-track seek: 0  # milliseconds
drivedata: 0

8 partitions:
#        size   offset    fstype   [fsize bsize bps/cpg]
  c:  6329610        0    unused        0     0         # (Cyl.    0 - 393)

I tryed in many different ways and I tryed to search some document but the
result was remained negative.
any hints ?

As a rule of thumb, create a slice with the OS it belongs to. So use
WinXP or NT to create (and format) the slice.

Disklabels are nonsense in NTFS slices, they are only meant for BSD'ish
slices (AFAIK).

David.
