Default ffs2

Ive read the faq 14.7 about large drives but im not quite sure i understand howto.
I got this 1.5tb seagatedisk and it has to be ffs2 aparently since ffs1 cant handle more then little less then 1tb. Its not meant for /, /var,/usr but more like /storage.

how do i format the disk?
doing man newfs give me this:
-t fstype Set the file system type of which file system you wish to
create. newfs will be smart enough to run the alternate
newfs_XXX program instead.
Will it be smart enough so i just write newfs -t ffs2 wd4 ?

At the bottom of faq14.7
The boot/installation kernels only support FFS
Do i need to add ffs2 to my system somehow or do i misunderstand the context?
