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

yes, for ATA disks, the device entry is /dev/hdxa where x is alpha (a-h for four controllers, a-d for two controllers), and where a is a number. For instance, first partition on first HDD on master would be:
/dev/hda1
etc, etc.
