FREEBSD to SLACKWARE COnversion

Hi

I got a dedicated system for UNIX now-

Right, I installed FREEBSD and could not get a program to work due to In Compatability.

So I got files for SLACKWARE installed on my XP machine- I transferred them to the FREEBSD Partition.

I have 2 more linux partitions and a Linux swap partition.

I need help in transferring the files from Bsd to EXT2FS

I format both linux partition now and all i need to Know is how to go from one to another

Q1)
Is there a way to Transfer Files from a FreeBSD partition to a Linux Partition?


Question 2)
Is the Hard drive Names different on FreeBSD?
On FreeBSD it seems to be called AD01 - 2 -3
and on Linux, it seems to be called HDA1 -2 - 3
Is this True?

Thanks in Advance

Jesse

findfs - find a filesystem by label or UUID SYNOPSIS
findfs NAME=value DESCRIPTION
findfs will search the block devices in the system looking for a filesystem or partition with specified tag. The currently supported tags are: LABEL=<label> Specifies filesystem label. UUID=<uuid> Specifies filesystem UUID. PARTUUID=<uuid> Specifies partition UUID. This partition identifier is supported for example for GUID Partition Table (GPT) partition tables. PARTLABEL=<label> Specifies partition label (name). The partition labels are supported for example for GUID Partition Table (GPT) or MAC partition tables. If the filesystem or partition is found, the device name will be printed on stdout. The complete overview about filesystems and partitions you can get for example by lsblk --fs partx --show <disk> blkid EXIT STATUS
0 success 1 label or uuid cannot be found 2 usage error, wrong number of arguments or unknown option AUTHOR
