UFS2+SoftUpdates works fine on properly configured UFS2 - and very fast.
Why you need sysinstall AT ALL?
use any CD/DVD distro like FreeSBIE, or even better - the one that
loads itself to RAM and no longer needs HDD, or even FreeBSD already
installed on Pendrive.
Boot it, then partition/newfs your disk(s) whatever you like, mount
target, then use
install.sh scripts from FreeBSD install CD to install system
in every directory
then install bootblock and edit fstab, your system will boot.
Sysinstall is to help beginners, but do beginners need so complex setups?
