This is incorrect however. I didn't say it would be ideal but it is possibl=
e to do a raidz2 with 3 drives. Just to verify myself I pulled out a handy =
usb stick to test.

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=
lling FreeBSD=2C It is how you do it manually to fit ones needs like you ha=
ve now. 		 	   		  =
