I thought sysinstall was supposed to take care of that so I haven't tried it
until now. Everything looks sensible except for the last few lines which 
say something like (excuse any typos - I don't have cut/paste here):

8 partitions:
#	size       offset       fstype  [fsize bsize bps/cpg]
  c:	2031650		0	unused	0     0     # (Cyl.   0 - 27088*)

Can I just change "unused" to "freebsd"? What should I do about the 8
partitions? Change it to 1, or leave it as it is?

Thanks,
Mark
