The FreeBSD handbooks section on adding disks (and OpenBSDs FAQ on the same issue) and the manual pages for fdisk, bsdlabel, and newfs are good. There is no need to use sysinstall, the commands and manuals are very suitable.

In very simple terms:

fdisk == slice editor
bsdlabel == partition editor (within slice)
newfs == the program to (re)formats a partition with a BSD file system.
