Subject: Re: Installing from USB Flash Drive

When booting the USB flash drive which contains the install cd1 iso you go
into sysinstall by default.
There is no way to stay in the sysinstall pgm and issue a mount command for
da0 that I can find.
Exiting sysinstall just causes a reboot and you are right back at point you
just left.

Please explain how to mount USB flash drive when it's all ready used to boot
from.
