Default Help creating a slice

We are installing FreeBSD in a dual boot config with Windows 7 for a project at work. Half the disk will be for Windows 7 and the other half for FreeBSD. I know you need to have the HD geometry the BIOS sees. Dell has become nice and cute with their BIOS and they don't tell you what the geometry is anymore. Is there anyway I can figure out what it is? On previous builds I've trusted the geometry FreeBSD guessed but it was wrong and we ended up having boot problems.
