Using multiple zip disks

I have an external USB Iomega Zip 250 drive that is working properly after I
configured it using sysinstall. I have added an entry to fstab that allows
me to just enter "mount /zip" to mount it.
/dev/da0s1e /zip ufs rw,noauto 0 0
The problem is that I have more than one zip disk that I would like to use.
I have some zip 100's and some zip 250's.
The only disk that has a ufs filesystem on it is the one that was in it when I
configured it, a zip 100.
What is the proper way in 4.8 to prepare my other disks so that I can insert
any of them, regardless of the size, and just enter "mount /zip"?
I'm thinking use sysinstall with one of the zip 250's in the drive, configure
a new slice, and mount it at /zip2...? Then I would "mount /zip2"
Then maybe I can just insert one of the zip 100's, and manually put a
filesystem on it like I was installing a new HD...?
Am I close? Is there a *real* easy way?
