Ummm... I think the OP means section 2.8 of the Handbook:

That's either the result of an earlier error while trying to run fdisk(8)
to write a new slice table to create the ad2s3 slice or an error while
trying to divide that slice up into FreeBSD partitions using bsdlabel(8).
Unfortunately it's impossible to say what error given the information

Hitting Alt-F2 after telling sysinstall(8) to commit all the changes will
get you to a verbose output screen -- chances are that will tell you rather
more intelligibly what the exact problem is.
