sysinstall is the system installation utility.  After you're installed, it
lives in /stand/sysinstall.

Check out my disk building docs at
http://resnet.uoregon.edu/dwhite/makedisk.html.  No tilde.  This walks you
through the setup procedure.  I tested it on an IDE drive and on a SCSI
Zip, which is exactly like a SCSI disk for all intents and purposes.
