If you are talking about using sysinstall to modify drives in use,
then the answer is probably no.

For that job you want to use the correct tools:  fdisk(8) and
bsdlabel(8) (tacitly assuming i386 here).

If you are talking about a problem during initial install of FreeBSD
you need to provide more details about it.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
