Hello,

I've been trying to use pre-configuration files for sysinstall in
FreeBSD 2.2.1.
I had working files for the old preconfiguration (FreeBSD 2.1.0).
Settings regarding installation media, ipaddr., router, distributions
and so on seems to work. What I can't get to work is the disk
partitioning and labelling (and startup of installationprocess).

Since I haven't been able to find any documentation on the subject I
have tried to read the source code.
That gave me some hints but I still can't get the disk configuration to
work (has the keyword script changed?). Sysinstall sets the disk
labelling variables though.

If anyone is familiar with the new sysinstall pre-config I would be very
glad to know what to do.

(I haven't had time to look at FreeBSD 2.2.2 yet. Since there are some
changes in the sysconfig files I don't want to switch to it yet, but if
the pre-config in sysinstall is improved I will change to that release)

	Regards Johan
