 RE: migrate the home directory to a new partition

/dev/ad0s3a / ufs rw
/dev/ad1s1e /var ufs rw
/dev/ad1s2e /home ufs rw

if you slice it up, i believe it will look like this

/dev/ad1s1e /var ufs rw
/dev/ad1s1f /home ufs rw

when you make the slices with stand sysinstall (which you should do) you can make sure before taking note and adding those to the fstab

shutdown in to single user mode
then mount them to a different place (/mnt/home) and copy them over. then unmount, update fstab
exit and you're finished
