Great. That answers my question exactly.

Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/da0s1a 97M 62M 27M 70% /
/dev/da0s1e 7.7G 6.2G 900M 88% /usr
/dev/ad0s1e 72G 66G 772M 99% /home
procfs 4.0K 4.0K 0B 100% /proc
So I'm booting off of a SCSI disk da0.
I want to replace ad0s1e with the new 300GB monster.

But not in my case since this disk is just storage I think, right. Actually,
when I run the disklabel do I need to use -B at all. I don't need a bootstrap
since its not a boot disk, right?
