Problems adding a second hard drive

Hi all

I had installed FreeBSD 4.7 on an old pentium I 100MHz with 128Meg RAM and a
2Gig Hard drive.  It worked, albeit a little slow but perfectly usable for
experimenting with and learningFreeBSD, and surfing the net.  I got a 3.1Gig
hard drive and thought I'd add it to the FreBSD box and since 4.9 had just
been released I'd start from scratch and install that as well.

It took me a little time to figure how to do this but I managed (or so I
thought) to install FreeBSD.  However although I can see both drives during
the installation  if I do a df all that is displayed is ad0s with no
information on ad2s.  Also I cannot install any more programms since it says
/usr is full.  I'm begining to wonder if the ad2s drive is being used at
all.  When I installed FreeBSD I used the auto defaults for both drives.
Was this the right thing to do?  Any hints or tips would be usefull.
