Depinguinator and sysinstall

I am currently trying to install 5.2.1 remotely on a server using the
depinguinator ( http://www.daemonology.net/depenguinator/ ).
It boots without problems but I am unable to install a FreeBSD using
sysinstall does not create slices and lables. If I commit my settings
I'll get an error for each partition that it does not exist ("Error:
/dev/ad0s1x does not exsist").
But there is no problem in doing it manually with fdisk and disklabel.
For this reason I tried to mount everything in /mnt and told sysinstall
to use /mnt as base path (expert mode) but the installation uses /usr
instead of /mnt/usr. This will cause a failure because /usr is a mem disk.
As there any other way in installing FreeBSD semi-manually?
