This is incorrect however. I didn't say it would be ideal but it is possibl=

bsdinstall is a really well done piece of work for something that was alrea=
dy made to be simple. The guide that was posted may not be to your exact ne=
ed=2C but It is faily close and quite current. Its not a hacky way of insta=
