If the partition is set up correctly, it should automatically appear
in the output of disklabel. disklabel collects the root partition (NBR\7)
as 'a', the swap partition (NBS\1) as 'b', a fake partition 'c' to represent
the whole disk, and then every other partition (NBU\7) on the disk starting
with 'd'.

For example:

# disklabel sd0
 f:   1242340   1994120     4.2BSD   1024  8192     0  # (Cyl.    159 -    259)

This would be the third other partition.

You can format the filesystem on the partition with:

# newfs /dev/rsd0f 

create a directory /home (probably already exists):

# mkdir /home

and add a line to /etc/fstab with a text editor:

 /dev/sd0f /home ffs rw  0 2

or if you want journaling:

 /dev/sd0f /home ffs rw,log  0 2

Then you can mount the partition

# mount /home

and use it to add user accounts

# useradd -m -b /home -c "John Silver" john
# useradd -m -b /home -c "Betty Boop" betty
