The following is the partition table:
Disk name: da0 FDISK Partition
DISK Geometry: 2231 cyls/255 heads/63 sectors = 35841015 sectors
Offset Size(ST) End Name PType Desc Subtype
0 63 62 - 6 unused 0
63 25189857 25189919 da0s1 3 freebsd 165
25189920 10653750 35843669 - 6 unused 0
the end sectors of partition 2 has beyond the total sectors,
if I adjust and re-initialize it, I hope it will not affect
the existed system. I will backup the important
data, but I hope I don't need to re-install the whole system,
because it will spend too much time to do it :-)
