    Question freebsd root directory too small pls help me

    im a unix amateur who is trying to make do with freebsd while waiting for other assignments.

    i am currently running nat+dhcp+router+fileserver on a freebsd machine, when my teacher told me to install samba on it, during setup of the program i hit a problem with my root directory partition being too small.

    when i try to add another user it says file system full and when i use the "df" command i get this information:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
    /dev/ad0s1a 507630 506484 -39464 108% /
    devfs 1 1 0 100% /dev
    /dev/ad0s1e 507630 24 466996 0% /tmp
    /dev/ad0s1f 34340492 6974376 24618878 22% /usr
    /dev/ad0s1d 1502094 37158 1344770 3% /var
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    i really dont want to start all over and ive been looking for a way to make the partition larger but i dont know if it is even possible.

    please help me with this problem if you can.

    How exactly are you trying to install samba? Are you using ports or trying to compile it yourself?
