I do not wish to add another disk.
I want to add another slice on a active installation (which could be done with the disk unmounted) as I do have FreeBSD installed on other disks on same computer. Or, would it be possible (how?) to add a partition on the same disk that could be used to store files or another OS?
Sysinstall, growfs and newfs do not appear to have the capacities that I am looking for... I am not interested in reinstalling ...
I'm not sure if it's possible to reset the geometry and/or the labels as one does when installing... I have seen some weird stuff when trying to use these tools... the instructions are not always "spot-on-clear"...

Is there a way I can add 1 or more slices or how to use the remaining space?
