freeBSD filesystem full...But can't be full

I have two 80 gig h/d's
when I installed freeBSD 5.21 (Release), I used the auto (default file system) when I fdisk'd it.
It installed the default ( / ,tmp, usr, var) file system (only on the 1st hd - ad0).
When I look at the /dev:
ls  /dev
ad0
ad0s1
ad0s1a
ad0s1b
ad0s1c
ad0s1d
ad0s1e
ad0s1f
ad1

if I use the fdisk (with no arguments) command it will list 4 partitions
partition 1:
sysid 165 (0xa5), (freeBSD,NetBSD,386BSD)
start 63, size 156280257(76308) Flag 80 (active)
Beg: cyl 0/ head 1/ sector 1
end: cyl 1023/ head 254/ sector 63
partition 2: unused
partition 3: unused
partition 4: unused

I tried to install Oracle 10G,
first I created a directory mkdir (from the root) /oracle
then I gunzip'd the file, about 3 mins into it I got a "Filesystem full" warning.

What do I need to do to install Oracle (or anything else for that matter) Do I need to mkfs...? where & how
Also to get ad1 to work, will I need to mount it, if so how?

Thank you!

Try using the " df " command.  it will tell you how your disks are partitioned, where they are mounted and how big they are.  Its been a while since I did an auto-partition with fdisk, but it usually creates a relatively small "/" mount.  Most of the space will be mounted on "/usr" I think.

After confirming this with " df ", your work in your home directory or "/usr" and then symlink /usr/oracle to /oracle  (if thats where you want it):

" ln -s /usr/oracle /oracle "

Hope that gets you started...
