Use /stand/sysinstall to setup your new drive. It's the easiest way.
Also, you can graft the filesystems on your new disk anywhere into your
existing filesystem you want. You'll probably have to shuffle some stuff
around to clear up things further up the directory tree from your
soon-to-be-new mountpoint. As an example, on my home machine, , I
initially installed my system with only /, and /usr. As FreeBSD slowly
squeezed everything else out, I now have filesystems mounted on /, /var,
/usr, and /usr/local. No problem.
