The BSDs don't use normal partitioning schemes, usually you give them 1 partition and then slice that up. The 3rd screen you posted is where you would create the slices you want, including swap.

And as for your modem, I highly doubt the same sources will work. Check the docs that come with the modem source, it will say if it was written with anything other than Linux in mind.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
