The 'c' partition represents the entire disk (or slice), if you're creating
a partition to cover the entire disk/slice you can use 'c' but certain
utilities will complain.
If you label the disk, and then examine the resulting label, you'll
typically have an 'a' partition and a 'c' partition. The 'a' partition
will default to the whole disk. Something like this:
test54# bsdlabel /dev/ad6
# size offset fstype [fsize bsize bps/cpg]
a: 156301472 16 4.2BSD 2048 16384 28552
c: 156301488 0 unused 0 0 # "raw" part,
You can newfs the 'a' partition and you're all set. If you want to have
more than one partition on that disk/slice, then you'll have to create the
