 Understanding FreeBSD Disklabels

On Lamp talks about FreeBSD Disklabels.

"Disklabel" is a term many people brush off on those occasions when they hear it. Once you have a running system, you don't need to worry about disklabels. Most BSD operating systems gloss over the details of disklabels during the install process, making a new user's life slightly easier. (OpenBSD actually brings a user into fairly intimate contact with the disk, but it's the exception.) One day when things go wrong, however, you'll wish you understood disklabels."
