Uhmp, is this typo?         ^^^^^^^
Lable "b" is swap-reserved (e.g da0s1b)

Create one slice for the whole disk (da0s1) and one label for / (da0s1a) one 
for swap (da0s1b) and at least one label for /usr (da0s1d on 5.x otherwise 
ad0s1e). da0s1c reflects "the whole" disk.
If you're new to FreeBSD figure out the difference between slice and label 
resp. partitions.
