thanks Michael

this is what i've done (based on the FreeBSD handbook): creating a
partition for journal, go to single user mode, unmount desired partition
(for example /usr), load gjournal, add journal partition to /usr partition.
this procedure works well for user and other partitions except root because
i can not unmount it.

should i set up journaling in fixit mode with gpart? how? i try different
ways but none of them work for me:((
