        At sysinst installation time, if user wanted to customize partition 
	by him/her-self, and if, extra partition specified other than / swap /usr,  
	the /usr partition won't appear at confirm and resulting list. The space is
	 allocated. So user may add the corresponding /usr partition manually 
	for work arround.

Start sysinst, at partition selection screen,

(1) choose c:
  * Choose your installation *
  *                          *
  * a: Standard              *
  * b: Standard with X       *
  *>c: Custom                *

(2) choose a: for Megabytes ( may be any, I have not checked others,sorry)
  * Choose your size specifier *
  *                            *
  *>a: Megabytes               *
  * b: Cylinders               *
  * c: Sectors                 *

(3) enter each size for root(100),swap(200),usr(210) for example
    (the number shown here are just examples, not to mention).
 I will be asking for partition sizes and on some, mount points.
 First the root partition.  You have 2446 MB left on your disk.
 Root partition size?  [32]: 100
 Next the swap partition.  You have 2345 MB left on your disk.
 Swap partition size?  [128]: 200

 Next the /usr partition.  You have 2145 MB left on your disk.
 /usr partition size?  [2145]: 210

(4) enter more /pkgsrc(160) /export(1774)
 You still have some space remaining unallocated on your disk.  Please give
 sizes and mount points for the following partitions.
 The next partition is /dev/wd0f.  You have 1935 MB left on your disk.
 Partition size?  [1935]: 160
 mount point: /pkgsrc
 The next partition is /dev/wd0g.  You have 1774 MB left on your disk.
 Partition size?  [1774]: 
 mount point: /export

(5) and /usr partition does not included in the list.
The space are allocated so that it could be added manually later.

 We now have your BSD-disklabel partitions as (Size and Offset in MB):
    Size      Offset    End       FStype Bsize Fsize Mount point
    --------- --------- --------- ------ ----- ----- -----------
 a: 100       0         99        4.2BSD 8192  1024  /
 b: 200       100       299       swap   
 c: 2446      0         2445      unused 
 f: 160       510       670       4.2BSD 8192  1024  /pkgsrc
 g: 1774      671       2445      4.2BSD 8192  1024  /export

	Sorry, not for now,
