Large file system creation

Hi all.  I'm trying to create a ~9TB partition on a new file server.
I thought FreeBSD now supported this (I'm on 7.0), but I can't figure
it out.  I go into sysinstall, create the partition in fdisk using "A
= Use Entire Disk), write it to disk, exit sysinstall and re-run
it...and sysinstall doesn't show what it showed before I exited last

Can someone shed some light on what I'm doing wrong here?
