2-Possibility

1. New disk and with ufsdump copy
(small disk -->large disk)
and after copy the large disk new id as boot disk
or with eprom modus the new disk as bootable.

2. Example /opt
   cp -pr /opt/* /newdisk/opt
   rm -r /opt
   ln -s /newdisk/opt /opt

  or another directory but caution
  not directory where need to boot system
