Default Second Hard Drive


I've a second hard drive (internal) that I couldn't set up during the install program.

It's a larger drive; and I'm already beginning to peg my /home directory limits of my original HDD.

Reading up on Section 14, I'd like to start using that disk. It talks about copying/xfering the usr/local directory. I need to copy /home over; but would like to know if the new disk can be used/integrated better.

(thinking of splitting the disk to two partitions - usr and home - or using some of it for Virtualbox(if I can get it running under emul/linux) or KQEMU virtual images of Windoze and/or Linux)

Q1: With about 100GB available; what would be a good way to partition the second drive? Do people use GParted here, or are there better tools used here in OBSD?

Any suggestions and tips would be appreciated.
