I've found growfs and looked at tunefs--- is there a utility to shrink a 
partition so that I can give the space to another one

[EMAIL PROTECTED](/sbin)ttyp1 > df -h
Filesystem    Size   Used  Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad0s1a    97M    41M    48M    46%    /
/dev/ad0s1f    17G   1.8G    14G    11%    /usr
/dev/ad0s1e    19M   7.9M   9.9M    44%    /var
procfs        4.0K   4.0K     0B   100%    /proc

This is the current disk stats ... NB this disk was setup using auto sizing 
from the install CD (poss miscalculation??)

We need to reallocate space from ad0s1f and give it to ad0s1e
preferably with out rebuilding the machine.

I am thinking of paxing /var to /usr/var, then unmounting /var
and symlinking /usr/var to /var as an interim step

But I would like them to remain on separate better sized slices

And if someone has done this can they post their "recipe"
