Default Creating 2 slices


I'm thinking of creating two FreeBSD slices (BIOS partitions) on the same disk: one for /, /tmp, /var, /usr and the second for /home.

1. Is this possible?

2. If I ever reinstall the system or install a new version, will sysinstall keep all files under /home intact (I believe there's a flag for that in disklabel)?

Thank you.
May the source be with you!
