In any case, do not use /stand/sysinstall for this. You need more direct control and should use disklabel directly. As mentioned in my previous posting use the command 'disklabel -e -r asd1s1' and then edit the tmp file

Thank you guys for your help. I actually did use sysinstall (sorry, Jerry) and mission is accomplished. Yes, indeed, I lost the data is the two merged partitions 'f' and 'g', but that was no problem; I needed to keep the data in all other partitions. Sysinstall did all that for me.

Meanwhile I learned a lot more about disklabel, thanks to your comments.
Great and many thanks,
