Subject: How to start clean install again?

What's the best way to erase an installation of FreeBSD 
completely from a HD and start over? I'm installing 4.10 
from am ISO CD, and it installs fine. However, I would 
like to start over from scratch and it "remembers" some 
of what was on the HD from the last install. If I were 
in Windows/DOS I would just "format C:" but that doesn't 
seem to be an option here.

Boot from CD as usual at 
When displaying the hard disk with FreeBSD slice click on Delete key...
Then just recreate the partition as before...
