How to Re-Label / Re-create filesystems?

Could someone point me to instructions or offer suggestions on how to
re-configure file systems on a 6.x system?
When I installed from CD, I used the sysinstall menu, which I guess
actually calls bsdlabel and newfs (??)
I want to delete two filesystems, and recreate one large one in the same
space. I tried dropping to single user and running sysinstall, but it
protests it can't write to the device... even when I only had things
mounted read-only. Can I safely use the boot CD to do this? I don't
want to experiment too much and clobber the whole drive!
