Question How do I skip format on some partitions in a fresh install?

Hello!

Im about to upgrade my server to OpenBSD 4.3 and I have something I must understand before I start...

How do I save partitions ("/backup" and "/home") from being formatted in the install procedure? As far as I can see in http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq4.html#Disks you will always end up formatting ALL partitions in the last step.

The only idea I have for a solution is to type "!" for a command prompt and format the non /backup and /home partitions manually (dunno what to type to do it though). Then just continue with the installation (skipping the format step ofcourse). But if I can skip doing this manually I would be more then happy.


Take care
