Jerry, Below is what I see in response to the cmd; as I'm unfamiliar with it could you please be more explicit about how I may proceed?

You can easily try it in sysinstall. Yes, that has been mentioned - I wasn't sure if it would work as desired - without overwriting too much - or not. But, if it is tried , be sure to use the exact partition schema as was done before. I think that was everything in one partition - called c, but I am not sure that is exactly what was done. So, the question is, did the OP use bsdlabel (alone or in sysinstall) when originally creating that filesystem? If so, probably using bsdlabel again on it - WITHOUT doing a newfs - would be worth trying. It probably can't do anything worse than what is already the case. If it was all one partition in a single slice, then run bsdlabel -e on the slice /dev/ad1s1 and take out the unused type from 'c' and make it BSD4.2. Make the offset '*' and the size be everything. Then exit out and hope for the best. ////jerry
