Use fdisk to slice and do the mbr.
In 4.xxx use disklabel to do disk labeling (partitioning) and boot block.
In 5.xxx use bsdlabel to do disk labeling and boot block.
Then use newfs to create filesystems in the partitions created

Once you create the new drive, then, in single user, dump(8) | restore(8)
from the old partitions/file systems to the new ones.
