I have an existing system which I cannot reinstall and sysinstall seems like
too much of a wizard to use on a well running existing system.  When I built
the system 2 years ago I decided to leave about 25GB of unpartitioned space
for future unknown projects, I now have a use for the space but I can't for
the life of me figure out exactly what steps are needed to use the space.

The system is configured as follows:
Dell PE 2650 with 3x36GB drives in a Hardware RAID 5 on a PERC controller
4.11-STABLE

And the currect disklabel is:
#disklabel aacd0s1
# /dev/aacd0s1c:
type: ESDI
disk: aacd0s1
label:
flags:
bytes/sector: 512
sectors/track: 63
tracks/cylinder: 255
sectors/cylinder: 16065
cylinders: 8849
sectors/unit: 142175187
rpm: 3600
interleave: 1
trackskew: 0
cylinderskew: 0
headswitch: 0           # milliseconds
track-to-track seek: 0  # milliseconds
drivedata: 0

8 partitions:
#        size   offset    fstype   [fsize bsize bps/cpg]
  a:  4096000        0    4.2BSD     2048 16384    90   # (Cyl.    0 - 254*)
  b:  3072000  4096000      swap                        # (Cyl.  254*- 446*)
  c: 142175187        0    unused        0     0        # (Cyl.    0 -
8849*)
  e: 12288000  7168000    4.2BSD     2048 16384    89   # (Cyl.  446*-
1211*)
  f:  4096000 19456000    4.2BSD     2048 16384    90   # (Cyl. 1211*-
1466*)
  g: 61440000 23552000    4.2BSD     2048 16384    89   # (Cyl. 1466*-
5290*)

As you can see I have space available from 84992000 through 142175187.  I
have done similar things in Solaris and other OS's but I'm just not sure
exactly what the FreeBSD steps are to utilize this space.

Any pointers are appreciated.


Thanks,
Scott
