.... I just dd'ed the FreeBSD 9.3 RELEASE memstick image onto a 4 GB USB 
drive. When I mount it, it shows 101% full, w/ about 717 MB of stuff. 
The NetBSD folks often (for Raspberry Pi, for example) recommend & 
provide examples of how to mess with the partition table after dd'ing to 
restore 'full' USB drive capacity as noted by df w/o messing up any of 
the other data in the stick. Is this feasible under FreeBSD ? If so, has 
anyone tried/done it ? How did it go :-) ? Care to post your commands 
that worked :-) ? TIA & have a good one ....
