Responding to Warren Block <wblock at wonkity.com> and others on the boot partition:

So the 64 KB boot partition, nonbootable on my computer, is for legacy BIOS and no good on UEFI?

But I was able to boot the installation memstick for BETA1 and BETA2.

If the 64 KB boot partition is nonfunctional for me, I'd like it to be optional.  Or maybe the installation would go through even without the boot partition?

I notice there is no /usr/mdec directory in FreeBSD 9.0-to-be as there was in FreeBSD 8.2 and still is in NetBSD.

Another question on the same general topic, the new bsdinstaller:

Is the home directory supposed to be /home or /usr/home?

I wanted /home, but the installer made /home into a symbolic link to /usr/home,  I corrected this successfully, but later saw, regarding PC-BSD 9.0-BETA2:
Auto correct if user tries to use /home to /usr/home
(end of quote)

I think I did

rm /home
mv /usr/home /
