I've never installed OpenBSD on the same disk as a Linux distribution
but an OpenBSD slice on a separate disk'll be recognized as an
extended partition and the OpenBSD slice partitions'll be recognized
as logical partitions of that extended partition. dmesg'll show
something like  "sdb4: <openbsd: sdb5 ...>".

Linux and the BSDs can't share a swap partition.
