This is what I have below, I added the labels to the right of how I'm using them now and they were setup during install. The whole disk is used for FreeBSD. I know that I have 100GB of free space left on the c: partition. What I'd like to do is take 20GB of that free space only and make mount it. That 100MB is for remote backup of some clients, I have one now that will be sending up to 20GB. Next week, I may create another 5GB for another customer. I like the idea of having a separate partition for each customers data.

8 partitions:
#        size   offset    fstype   [fsize bsize bps/cpg]
  a:  4096000        0    4.2BSD     2048 16384 28552    # /      2000MB
  b:  4139008  4096000      swap
  c: 312448122        0    unused        0     0         # "raw" part, don't edit
  d: 40960000  8235008    4.2BSD     2048 16384 28552    # /usr  20000MB
  e: 20480000 49195008    4.2BSD     2048 16384 28552    # /var  10000MB
  f:  2048000 69675008    4.2BSD     2048 16384 28552    # /tmp   1000MB
  g: 35923968 71723008    4.2BSD     2048 16384 28552    # /home 17541MB

Anyway, I just want to take part of the free space, not all of it, right now, and want to be sure about what I'm doing. How do I get just that 20GB setup? Using your example, is this what I need to do in the editor:

#        size   offset    fstype   [fsize bsize bps/cpg]
>   c: 71681967        0    unused        0     0        
>   h: 40960000        0    4.2BSD     1024  8192    16

Thanks for the great instructions.
