I am not sure how big a question you are asking here. If it is just what the dev name will be, then others have answered that. Just look in /dev for ad* or look in dmesg for ad** devices being recognized, etc. But, maybe you mean the whole process of getting the new drive built, mounted and usable. Is that what you are asking? If so, the first comment is 'the FreeBSD Handbook is your Friend'. The general outline is: fdisk(8) - Make at least one FreeBSD slice on it bsdlabel(8) - Make at least one partition in each slice newfs(8) - Build a filesystem on each partition created mkdir /newdska - create mount points for each partition to be mounted edit /etc/fstab to add mount definitions - presuming you want it mounted - whenever you boot. Something like: /dev/ad1s1a /newdsk ufs rw 2 2 mount /newdsk - (or just 'mount -a' will do it) Mount the partition You can use sysinstall to do all this if you are squeemish about doing it youself. But is really isn't that hard and you will learn a little more about how you disk system is put together.
