I saw this when I looked at the partitions with the installation process.
I figured it had something to do with the OS.

Given my current experience I'm not likely to _want_ to do that ;-)

On the other hand, I should be able to create slice 3 anyway, as it
doesn't consume any additional space from the disk, right?

How many slices can I get out of one device? Is the limit a Linux one, or
one caused by the hardware architecture of the Ultra? This is the part
that I expected to be different from my Intel experience, is it?

Waiting is,
