Cribbing from some old notes:

disklabel da1
newfs filesystems.
mount fs under /da1
for each partion fs on da0:
	cd /da1/$fs
	dump 0f - /$fs  | restore -rf -   #tar's not reliable, here
adjust /da1/etc/fstab
disklabel -B da1
bring system down
Re-jumper da1 to da0; remove old da0

Cheers,                        Open-source SourceForge retakes the lead:
