There is nothing wrong with running sysinstall(8) on a live system. Can
even be run remotely via ssh. Suggest you skip down to the (C)onfigure
menu. Use (F)disk and (L)abel. Put your new partitions under /mnt/ or
someplace separate from your running system filespace. Use (W)rite once
you have things the way you desire. Then exit from sysinstall(8).
Double check your /etc/fstab after, as sysinstall usually updates it
when new filesystems are created, else you may be surprised at the next
boot. Also appends stuff at the tail of /etc/rc.conf.
The manpage says:
The sysinstall utility is essentially nothing more than a
program with the ability to write MBRs and disk labels ...
