This article discusses file systems and partitions for freeBSD: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/disk-organization.h...

I imagine you would need a minimum of two partitions one for root and one for swap. Also this one is from freebsd's website:

yes as root you can reset a user's password with the command:

passwd username

where username is the name of the user you would like to do a password reset on.

If you cannot login at all then start over. This time make a note of the usernames and passwords that you specify when installing.

If you can login as root but have forgotten the password for the user then use the "passwd" command to change it.

well technically if you lost your root password you can reset it by booting off of a LiveCD, it is not necessary to start all over.

You can, but on a brand- new install it's probably easier to do it again - and take notes.
