Well, did you really create a file system on ad1s1 - the whole
slice.   Probably, best if you also go in to disklabel(8) and
make at least one partition on that slice.
 
do   "disklabel -e -r ad1s1"

Edit the file.   I think it should come up with a c: line that has a type
called 'unused' (it has been quite a while since I added a virgin disk so 
my memory may be flakey here).   It would look something like:

 c: 78059835        0    unused        0     0         # (Cyl.    0 - 4858)

Copy that c: line and hange it to something like:

 a: 78059835        0    4.2BSD        0     0         # (Cyl.    0 - 4858)

Leave all the numbers the same - just change the 'c:' to 'a:' and 
the 'unused' to '4.2BSD'

Then use newfs(8) to create a filesystem on it:

do   "newfs /dev/ad1s1a"

If the number of inodes it automatically creates or some other
such thing doesn't suit you, then you will need to insert some
parameters on the newfs command, but usually just the bare newfs
like that will work just fine.

and then put the following in your fstab:

/dev/ad1s1a              /disk2          ufs     rw              2      2

I think you can talk to it as the whole slice without a partition
but it is not the usual way and not worth bothering with so, just
do as indicated.
 
If you are using /stand/sysinstall to run the fdisk, disklabel and newfs
commands for you, then make the related decisions - eg create one large
slice for FreeBSD on the ad1 disk, don't make it bootable or have any MBR 
(that's fdisk), then partition the slice with just one partition (a), use 
the 'c' for create partition and then just put all the blocks in to it and 
make it a file system (FS) with the mount point you want to use (that covers
the disklabel, newfs and editing fstab).  Back out and select Commit and 
it should take care of everything else for you.   Some prefer sysinstall
but I generally prefer doing the fdisk, disklabel, newfs and fstab myself
for disks beyond the initial install slice.   It's that control thing.
