Well, you will have to re-fdisk the drive.    
I don't really know if you can do all of it in place or not.
You will be best off making dump(8) backups of a, d and e
and then running fdisk to create your two slices and then
bsdlabel to create the partitions within the slices.

Is there a reason you want another slice - like you plan to
dual boot the machine or something?   If not, just use that
partition however you want and don't bother with the slice.
